Are you in support of increasing the activity fee at Lewiston-Auburn College?
(47%) Option 1: No. I am do not support increasing the activity at this time.
(0%) Option 2: Yes. I am in support of changing the activity fee to $3.25 per credit hour.
(33%) Option 2: Yes. I am in support of changing the activity fee to $4.50 per credit hour.
(20%) Option 3: Yes. I am in support of changing the activity fee to match that of the USM Portland and Gorham fee structures which vary based on the number of credit hours a student takes.
