Hey Fun ---Didn't State Farm endow a chair for Earl Flatt???? I know that they put up some bucks when the program started--Could you check????
Chairs & Professorships
I do know that Bill said he has a lot of scholarship money to work with.
Fun--I doubt the 1 mil but think that the 100k is the one that is Earl's---thanks---when can you answer my tuition question ---UL compared to UNO and Tech---thanks!!!!
Sorry Fun--in another post--per DA--'08-'09-----Tech-4761---UL-3633----If we would be at that level it would be an extra 18 mil or so a year!!!!! Ken Ardoin has pointed this out but how did it happen?????--UNO is slightly below Tech's amount!!!!
We forget that our "state" universities are actually "state-assisted." Student tuitions now provide more funding than state coffers do.
Every time we raise tuition, it turns some kids away. I know, bright and/or hard-working kids have all kinds of funding they can get.
But we all know of phenomenally successful business and political leaders-- heck, even successful university researchers-- who were mediocre college students.
People see some kids blowing money, driving expensive cars, wearing top-of-the-line clothes, and assume they ALL have money. They don't. Think about how broke most of us were when we were at UL.
Most of the kids today are just like we were.
And besides turning kids away, it has another, more subtle negative effect: it means more kids have to work, and they have to work more hours. That means less time being involved on campus, which means an impoverished campus life.
And it also means less leisure time, sitting around b.s.'ing with other people. That's an important aspect of the University experience, too.
Hey are you the UCONN MAN that I wrote the song for on Bop's show----Ucon man now that's a sports fan--Ucon man he'll take a stand--doesn't matter the topic of the day Ucon man gonna have his say---etc...???????
