    all the new construction and high coach salary's (that seem to have the power to keep criminals from prosecution) and tuition goes up again.. The average tax payer helping fund this place cannot send his kids to school at these prices. The college is becoming a college for the rich only. I pray our new honorable Governor steps in one day and says enough.
