Comments

Long a believer that residential private colleges in the $70+K list price range not named Princeton or Harvard were “dead men walking”, that price structure can not co-exist with what I predict will be increased distance learning as a consequence of Covid. More people will also be forced to public universities, the trades or no college at all, because of the damage to ability to pay by parents and from reduced college grants (from damaged endowments). Places like Quinnipiac and Oberlin may get a real wake-up call when they see enrollment this Fall.

There not dealing with financial problems seriously if only cutting salaries 3-5%.

At least the President of the school included herself in the cut. Sets the right tone.
