My name is Ivan Tse. This is my fourth year at UC Davis. For me, a June 30th lay off means a decrease in the quality of education for future UC Davis students. As a fourth year student, I have experienced great educational support from UC Davis lecturers such as Dr. Joel Ledford and Dr. Erika Strandjord. They were always available outside the classroom and extended a helping hand whenever we (the students) needed it. Whether it be hosting extra office hours or review sessions, they would go beyond their responsibilities to ensure their students had ample assistance to succeed in their class.
