Golden 1 Center Graduation Will Cost Sacramento State Triple


GETTING ANSWERS FROM ALL ACROSS NORTHERN CALIFORNIA. THIS IS THE CBS13 NEWS AT 10:00. I WASN’T AWARE OF IT GOING UP BUT I GUESS IT MAKES SENSE CONSIDERING THEY’RE CHANGING THE VENUE. THIS SPRINGS GRADUATION CEREMONY HAS A HEFTY PRICE TAG. OFFICIALS SAY IT WILL COST THREE TIMES AS MUCH TO HOLD IT AT GOLDEN ONE CENTER. NEW TONIGHT CBS13 IS LIVE IN THE NEWSROOM WITH THE MATH SOME STUDENTS SAY IS TOUGH TO STOMACH. THEY PAID ONLY $60,000 LAST SPRING TO HOLD GRADUATION CEREMONIES AT SLEEP TRAIN ARENA. IT CLOSED LEAVING THEM SCRAMBLING WITH WHAT TO DO FOR THIS YEAR. TONIGHT SOME STUDENTS ARE CALLING THIS PRICE EXCESSIVE WHILE OTHERS SAY THE NEW VENUE IS WORTH IT. IT’S STILL NOT FAIR FOR THE REST OF US OR THE REST OF THE GRADUATING SENIORS COMING IN BECAUSE WE’RE CHANGING LOCATION. ONE FINAL FINANCE LESSON FOR STUDENTS AT SAX STATE AS SENIORS APPROACH THE LAST FEW MONTHS BEFORE GRADUATION. I FEEL LIKE WE ALREADY HAVE TO PAY A LOT IT’S NOT REALLY FAIR TO HAVE TO PAY MORE JUST TO HAVE A CEREMONY FOR OUR ACCOMPLISHMENTS. NEW NUMBERS REVEAL IN JANUARY GRADUATION FEES WERE RAISED FROM $13 TO $76.50 IN ANTICIPATION OF HAVING TO FIND A NEW VENUE AFTER THE CLOSURE OF SLEEP TRAIN ARENA. THEY TELL US THEY LOOKED AT OTHER LOCATIONS INCLUDING THE CONVENTION CENTER, CAL EXPO, AND MEMORIAL AUDITORIUM BUT SAID THEY COULD NOT ACCOMMODATE EVERYONE. IT KIND OF SUCKS. BUT THEN AGAIN IT IS ALSO A NICER VENUE. SO IT’S GOT ITS PROS AND CONS. THE NEW CONTRACT WITH THE KINGS ARENA ALSO SHOWS THE SCHOOL HAS TO PAY A BASE FEE OF $50,000 PLUS ADDITIONAL CHARGES ESTIMATED TO INCLUDE TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT, CAMERA OPERATORS, AND LIGHTING AND STAGE HANDS WHICH ADDS ANOTHER $140,000 TO THEIR BILL FOR A TOTAL COST OF $190,000. NOW IT IS STILL UNCLEAR EXACTLY WHERE ALL OF THIS MONEY WILL COME FROM TO PAY FOR THIS BILL COME MAY. NOW OFFICIALS SAY THEY UNDERSTAND SOME OF THE CONCERN HERE AND THEY ARE ALREADY
