[quote]Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought the overwhelming majority of universities lost money on their athletic programs. [/quote] You are correct. Only 20 schools make money on athletics. LSU is one of them [link=(http://www.ncaa.org/about/resources/media-center/news/growth-division-i-a...

re: State student busts out his George Foreman mid-lecture and makes a sandwich
Posted by anc on 4/21 at 10:32 am
Word is that it actually was part of an assignment. There is a class taught by Hank Flick, a professor that has been at MSU for years, that at the end of a semester, you have to perform a "norm violation." Some people dress up and run across the Drill Field. Some people wear tuxedos and formal g...

At the university where I work, there was a $200 per semester increase in room and board costs. The costs are going to cover some renovations, some new technology, and an upgrade in cafeteria offerings. We have students that are in the halls crying because they aren't going to be able to come bac...

This will not be popular on a message board whose primary content is sports, but when I talk to today's college kids - they aren't like we were in regards to sports. I can honestly say I chose my undergraduate school because of SEC sports. Wasn't the smartest thing in hindsight, but I got a solid...

Africa has received $1 trillion in benevolent aid in the last 50 years, and per capita income is now lower, life expectancy has stagnated, and adult literacy is lower. 85 percent of aid money flowing to African countries never reaches the targeted areas of need. U.S. missions teams who rushed ...

Word is Boyce (former community college president) got the IHL Commissioner job. This is not good for State and Ole Miss, in my opinion. He's on board with the free Community College for all plan which will hurt every SEC school a little sans Vandy, but especially State and Ole Miss. Time for al...

re: Student Loan Repayment Options Explained
Posted by anc on 4/15 at 11:42 am
It can certainly be exploited. Say I am a MD making $150k with $250k in student loans. My standard payment is $1,342 for 30 years ($483,120), or $2,651 for 10 years ($318,120). But under PAYE, my payment is $1,000 and in 20 years ($240,000), the balance is forgiven ...

If you are eligible for PLSF, then you should pay the lowest per month that you can. There's going to be some high earners (think Ph.D's, some attorneys, some doctors) that have their loans completely forgiven after 10 years of standard payments. I'm eligible for PLSF, but my standard payment is...

As a higher ed administrator with no money sense, it is odd that I do know about this topic. I thought I would make a possible sticky on the subject. When you are no longer a student, you have about 6 months before you have to start to pay back your loans. What most people do not realize is that ...

I understand that some people are uncomfortable, but at no point does the realtor do jack. If something worries you about the mortgage, you are dealing with the bank. If something worries you about the closing, you are dealing with the attorney. Want to find out if the tree in the back yard has s...
