— University of North Carolina students hope their personal stories will persuade lawmakers not to raise tuition.

Students from all 16 state universities passed out copies of their book, "The Personal Stories Project: Faces, Not Numbers," Monday at the General Assembly.

The book combines 800 stories written by students, dealing with the struggles they face with rising tuition.

The UNC Student Association plans to give Gov. Mike Easley a copy on Tuesday.
