My name is Chun Kit Ho. This is my fifth year at UC Davis. I have receive enormous support from professors and faculty members from UC Davis. Professor such as Erika Strandjord have provided emotional and educational support during my time of depression. I plead UC Davis to reconsider your hiring freeze so these faculties can continue to provide resources to student not just academically. I think there is a better solution than just to laying off teachers, there must be a middle ground UC Davis and the faculties can come that allow them to stay.
