What happens when you give more money to public schools? (Part 2)

I'm currently visiting a friend at UCSD for the last few days of winter break, and apparently the school is having a referendum on whether to raise the student activity fee. Some people think the school doesn't have enough money to pay for such necessities as week-long parties with everyone's favorite musicians.

While I was eating in one of the cafeterias, I encountered a sign advertising an open forum on the referendum. Here's the text:
A.S. Activity Fee Referendum
Open Forum
Jan. 7th PC Ballroom B at noon
Free food and refreshments
What's wrong with this picture?

Columbia is just as wasteful. Columbia hires union laborers, I believe. Student fees are managed by dictators -- the campus jews/muslims/whatevers seem to get more funding.

We also waste money with senseless Christmas lights, don't have enough places to study during finals, and so on and so forth, but we have morons starving themselves in tents to get curriculum changes that don't even matter.
