I am a big fan of improvements and such but it is quite annoying when I see a slew of colleges launching these high dollar construction projects, while at the same time raising tuition every year.

Gotta keep raising that tuition to keep up with the construction.

Almost all college athletic facilities are financed by money completely unrelated to tuition. If you read the article they have $10M now, donated. And they are raising funds to reach their $45M goal. That money will not come from tuition. Many universities borrow money, and it is repaid directly from athletic department revenue (ticket sales, TV, etc.).

Yeah, the hundred million dollar renovation of TCU's football stadium was also all financed by donations, but one can argue that those donations can be used for academics, etc.

Just food for thought.

TCU's a private school with a $1.2 billion endowment.

I'm sure money for academics isn't that much of an issue. Besides, they've already made commitments to more educational facilities and dorms for the growing student body.

Just sayin'...

I graduated from TCU last year. I know what's going on. I'd just like to see more funding to improve the science facilities.

It's happening.

Besides, if anything, the athletic facilities are the ones playing catch up...
