I read that BrickStreet is giving $4 million to WVU. It made me sad, because the Morgantown university has mountains of money, while West Virginia State University and Tech at Montgomery -- here in the Kanawha Valley -- need donations a lot more.
What's new? BrickStreet is not unlike the whole system that rules the state. Rich get richer & poor get poorer. Even though our fine legislators and the governors home base is Charleston they send all our monies to Morgantown. The heck with Kanawha Valley and its residents! Morgantown rules the roost and if lucky everyone else will be compelled to accept the leftovers with humility and grace.
Thank you WVU for being so very gracious and generous. How in this world will we in the Kanawha Valley and other parts of the state ever be able to repay you.
Indebted to WVU we truly are.

If calculations prove to be right, Morgantown will continue to grow and will be larger than Charleston in 10 years. Consider it a good investment on BrickStreet's part.

If WVU is helping Morgantown grow, then what's the problem in Montgomery. WVU should be forced to adhere to its fudiciary, legal, and moral obligations to Tech, its divisional campus, and the Tech student in Montgomery in the same manner that it continues to faithfully fulfilled its fudiciary, legal, and moral obligations to the flagship university in Morgantown and the WVU student.
The Tech student deserves the same respect as does the WVU student.
Plus BrickStreet should be interested in growing Charleston and Kanawha Valley and accommodating the students within those boundaries.

Good points! WVU should offer more support to their divisional campuses (Potomac and Tech) but I don't hear anything about that. In fact, little is said in Morgantown about those two campuses even being part of the university system. Honestly, I can see the board of governors phasing out tech.

And Carolyn Long is playing a very, very integral part in that WVU strategy. Her leadership (if that's what one wants to call it) is living proof of WVU's neglect of a state institution that once prided itself in being the best in the state and one of the best in the nation.
Tech employees and alumni have an obligation to Tech to wise up, step up and save that campus because WVU will continue to follow the same path that it has followed for approximately two decades as far as Tech is concerned.
