The numbers are the same whether you’re talking about country or the state of California, where almost one million future information workers and unemployed fine arts majors requested some form of financial aid. Here in the East Bay, Mills College saw a 17.1 percent jump in broke students, while UC Berkeley’s number of indigent scholars rose 19.4 percent.
