Why College Costs So Much

Why College Costs So Much, Jay
Wrolstad, Ithaca Times
Ever wonder how Ivy league
schools could ask students to pay morre’s no end in sight for
rising college tuitions. Writing in the Ithaca
Wrolstad deconstructs the bizarre economics of
college costs, which have risen at 2.5 percent per year more
than inflation. In their endless quest for the highest national
rankings, selective schools compete for the best and brightest
students by constantly increasing spending on the best
information technology, living arrangements, and dining and
athletic facilities. And that doesn’t even touch upon all the
bureaucracy inside the college. Most schools have to take into
account the needs and desires of trustees, administrators,
faculty, staff and, increasingly, students. Unfortunately, it’s
usually the students who get stuck with the bill.
