BROOKLYN - A group of frustrated Medgar Evers students rallied for answers over school spending today, petitioning the college president to meet with them.

According to students, they want to know where the financially strapped school is spending its money and why. On a petition, they created a list of 31 questions about the college's budget, financial aid and school resources.

Students say they're suffering from funding cuts, which have done away with programs such as the writing center. The director of communications for Medgar Evers, Christopher Hundley, admits the college is facing financial difficulties and more cuts this year.

Hundley also says the president is planning to meet with students and answer any of their questions.
