Re "UCD goes upscale with dorms" (Our Region, Oct. 20): UC Davis is building fancy new dorms to cater to out-of-state and foreign students as a part of Chancellor Linda P.B. Katehi's 2020 plan.
I have heard about the university's plan to favor foreign students over in-state students. The Bee article compares UCD to USC, a private university. It was my impression and intent when I pay my state taxes that the public UC system was built by the citizens of California for the education of those same citizens.
I am outraged that the UCD administration has lost its way and is catering to foreign students. If the system has insufficient support, it should be given more tax dollars. If the money is wasted, they should be given less.
