Stumbled across this article on my lunch break.
TL;DR ... The University is to build a new Presidential Mansion to the tune of $7.2 Million Dollars. This is after ending a tuition freeze and after cutting 8 sports programs.
Also worth noting -- One terps track and field runner said "“It’s devastating...If we raised, I think it’s $4.2 million dollars, we could save [the track and field program]. But how is that going to happen? It’s almost impossible.”
$4.2 million dollars to keep the track program up and running? Is this yearly? Or is this the debt that they are facing - accumulated over a number of years? How can track and field cost $4.2 million?
