OU President David Boren speaks about OU's budget in the Beard Lounge April 19. Boren approved a 7 percent tuition hike on Tuesday, the largest for OU since 2008. 

OU President David Boren recommended a 7 percent increase of tuition for resident and non-resident students on Tuesday morning, the largest bump since 2008. 

Oklahoma's Board of Regents approved the move. The hike comes after a $20.3 million decrease in state appropriations. 

Boren said OU is operating with $160 million less than it did in 2008 despite having 1,000-1,500 more students. 

Plenty of OU students, parents and alumni sounded off on Twitter after the announcement.
