A crowded and impassioned meeting of American University of Beirut students campaigning to scrap a proposed tuition hike ended Tuesday evening with a vague decision to strike for one day next week, although divisions over future actions continued to hang in the air.The meeting, which took place at AUB's Bathish Auditorium in West Hall, saw hundreds of students gather to debate how best to combat a rise in tuition fees that activists say is not necessary and would make the world-class institution more unaffordable. The TIC, however, did not officially back calls for a strike, a proposal that was led instead by individual AUB students.
