Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

Despite the Hornet’s continual complaints about student apathy, over 500 interested students and supporters did turn out for an October 7, 1983 anti-tuition rally in the quad. The key speakers were President Philip Borst and Assemblyman Art Torres. That rally was followed by an anti-tuition barbeque on November 15, 1983. The theme was “Bite Dukemejian before he bites you.” Despite protests, the California Legislature implemented the first tuition for community colleges in 1984.
