I wish they'd fire half the $100K+ admin types. Christ, how many do we need? And piss on our woeful football team-slash-money drain. We're not replacing any retiring faculty, we're probably gonna make most of the budget cuts on the biweekly staff (janitorial and secretarial services) who really NEED their jobs, but yet we reward the team that's won 2 games in 6 years with a new stadium that we bought half of north-central Terre Haute for, to the tune of zillions of dollars (and I'm sure the coaching staff is paid more than entire academic departments if not SCHOOLS on campus). I know it's not as simple as I've laid out, but damn, man, this sucks. We've got our priorities entirely buggered up. I don't blame Pres. Benjamin or Bradley, but I sure do blame friggin Mitch Daniels. Loser moron.

A credit hour at this place has gone from a little of nothing when the university was founded to 55 dollars in the early 80's...100 years to get to 55 bucks, ok? In the last 25 years it has ballooned to what? Roughly 250.00? Thats insane. The only thing that has changed is there are more people receiving financial aid. What about us "cash pays" we are out here getting killed. This school is so bloated with overpaid loafers that think that they are actually doing something important. A Provost...What the hell is a provost? Another wasteful position. When I graduated there was an office of placement. They were to help you get a job after you graduated. Many, many offices. Nobody was EVER, EVER in there. The guy running Hulman Center, Cliff Lambert, NEVER at work...these people dont do sh#t!! Ask them though, they will tell you, 3 meetings, lunch and a golf outing, this is a days work for 185,000$. The stadium, well,not a bad idea if other changes are implemented as well. The football team has to be turned around bottom line. AND, I dont like it but its a fact, you have to let students bring alcohol into the games. Every other decent sized school does it, why not ISU? Look at the popularity of the walk...its HUGE. The Gestapo pigs in the Dream Police uniforms would love it, they could crack some punk skulls. However, on a more sane note concerning the stadium, think about the new stadium in terms of a tool to help keep students on campus through the weekend. This could translate into big money for local businesses.YES, LLoyd Benjamin did a tremendous amount of damage to this University

Most public universities are slashing budgets. State funding is falling off. I agree with the idea of cutting football, it probably won't happen.
