Members of the administration at the American University of Beirut are closely examining alternative budgets for next year, but any plan "must realistically include a tuition increase," according to a statement released by AUB President Peter Dorman Wednesday.The news will further frustrate students who have been campaigning for weeks to stop a proposed rise in tuition fees.Still, members of the University Student Faculty Committee said they doubted the administration's conclusion that tuition must increase for AUB to operate satisfactorily next year.Kontar said that he doubted students would support even a small fee increase, and speculated that some student activists would escalate protest activities.
