It appears that Fordham University has joined the sorry cast of figures doomed to suffer great indignities to survive this “Recession.” In order to make a little money to get by in these hard times, Fordham will be renting out facilities at Lincoln Center to conventions to the tune of one million dollars, according to crainsnewyork.com.
In these desperate times, where money is so tight, one must ask of this notoriously stingy institution: Where does our $40,000 a year tuition go to? Does it go Barnes & Noble so they can set up shop on our campus and scalp us on text books? Or does it go to Sodexo so that they can provide a poorly run service and nickle-and-dime our room and board? Who knows?
