Frank Harrison's voice rises. After two days of talks with Florida's student university leaders, he's getting frustrated.

Cheap tuition is at the top of their wish list, but Harrison confronts them, shaking the paper.

He asks: Where is there any demand of financial help for the state's poorest students? Where is there any question of what it costs to administer a top-flight higher education?

The incident last week isn't rare - Harrison is used to arguing with his peers. He serves as student government president at the University of South Florida and student representative on the state's university oversight board.
