News? I think not. When they decide not to raise rates, that will be news. Too much construction to fund now.

What is sad is that after spending sixty grand on a degree, the toughest answer the grad will be asked at their new job is "Do you have this in a size 6?".

That would be nice, that would be VERY appropriate -- but I doubt it. What likely WILL likely happen is that since Obamacare is going to cause UVa millions -- we'll have to EAT IT on that as well!

Or..."Mom, I know it has been six years since I graduated, but I just can't find a job that pays $50k with my General Studies Degree with a minor in Psych and Fashion Design. All of my friends on Facebook are having the same problem, so it is not just me, you know. By the way, could you pick me up some Doritos when you get groceries?"
