MSSU TUITION HIKE

  • It'll soon cost you more to attend Missouri Southern State University.  The school's Board of Governors Wednesday afternoon approved a tuition hike of $30 per credit hour, or nearly 15%.  Missouri Southern President Alan Marble said the increase is necessary to help compensate for years of declining state revenue.  The tuition hike is to take effect with the fall semester.

PSU BIKE SHARING

  • Pitt State launches a new bike share program.  The university unveiled 70 bicycles as part of a dockless pay-as-you-ride system.  The kick-off event coincided with the "Students for Sustainability" Earth Day celebration.  Students and community members can rent the bikes using the Veo-Ride app, which charges 50 cents for every 15 minutes the bicycles are checked-out.

GOLDEN STATE KILLER

  • A former California police officer is in custody, for allegedly carrying out a slew of murders and rapes...in the 70's and 80's.  72-year old Joseph James DeAngelo was arrested at his home Wednesday, after DNA allegedly linked him to some of the murders.  The suspected 'Golden State Killer' is expected to be arraigned on murder charges in Sacramento Friday.

ARIZONA TEACHER WALKOUT

  • Arizona teachers plan to walk off the job today.  They say they're taking a stand against low salaries, and classroom overcrowding.  Many of them have already held protests ahead of the strike.
