The state of Illinois is strapped for cash. Governor Rauner has yet to pass a budget and people are feeling the pain. Chicago State University is in the crosshairs of the battle. It has been reported that the school may close in early March. At this moment, the school has enough money to meet one more payroll. The school has been open for 150 years and is a fixture in the community, where 80% of the students are African American. Reportedly, 30% of the school’s operating budget comes from state funding and until the budget is passed, the fate of the university is in limbo. Rolling out spoke with a few graduates to get their feelings on this current situation. Read what they had to say, after the jump.
