Instead, maybe colleges should be using the millions they receive from their athletic programs to help reduce the cost of their outrageous tuition.
Stop giving coaches million dollar contracts and put the savings back into reducing student tuition costs. They can also stop the frivolous
development of their college campuses. They also scalp students on parking, and residential housing. Not to mention, the outrageous costs for books
and lab fees. Everything is designed to suck as much money out of these young kids and their parents! Is there any wonder why tuition costs have
raised faster than inflation? At the current rate, a baby born today will face college costs that are 3.7 times higher than they are today!
What ticks me off, is when my Alma Mater calls me and asks for a donation. Really? Didn't you drain enough money from me and now you want more?
Now they're draining my kids!
Most countries value educating their citizens, but it seems like the U.S. is making a college education more unattainable. Without an educated
populace, our economy will tank, lack innovation, and leadership in the world.
Soon, these colleges and universities are going to price themselves right out of the market!
