Panel to discuss Occupy movement

Tuition costs remain a hot topic on the University of Windsor campus, and now students are taking those concerns to the streets, joining the “Occupy” movements that were sparked on the streets of New York City.

Almoayad supports eliminating tuition altogether, saying it would cost “only $5 billion.”
