[SOUNDS OF CHANTS FROM RALLY]

Students and faculty at Sacramento State called for CSU Chancellor Charles Reed to step down during a rally in the library quad.  Yeimi Lopez is a fourth year student at Sacramento State who helped organize the protest. 

YEIMI LOPEZ: "We're having to pay 10 percent more every semester, but it doesn't make sense that we still can't get the classes that we need to graduate on time."

Erik Fallis with Chancellor Reed's Office says the office is cutting its operating budget by 14 percent to coincide with the 10 percent fee increase. 
 
ERIK FALLIS: "And even though the chancellor's office operation of our entire office is only two percent of the entire CSU budget it was important that we take a share of that cut so we could reduce the impact of that cut on our campuses."
 
Students ended the rally by marching through Sacramento State's administrative building chanting "no more cuts."
