Higher Education

I'd prefer having professors who have the skills to teach in innovative, creative ways. This is a shameless attempt by the University to increase enrollment by ripping off students. They'd have done better to spend the "generous gift from [their] Board of Trustees” to lower tuition costs, or to create a post-graduation-unemployment funds for graduates drowning in debt from their $30,000 education.

Furthermore, students have to pay for the phone plan - which will require them to incur cancelation fees to switch over to AT&T, not to mention paying the outrageous monthly bill for the plan. This is so absurd I'd laugh out loud if it didn't make me so angry.
