    @Joev,
    yeah – hilarious – There was an announcement the university made about locking in tuition increases that popped up on the local news sites, right after I made my snarky comments.
    I am happy about that.
    affordable education from a state university is becoming not so affordable.

    Won’t speak for Joe, but the statement that 50,000.00 would increase tuition and the other nonsense you mentioned, is ridiculous. Of course, they could raise tuition by 85 cents a student and pay for it I suppose. Or the athletic department could just write a check for it.

    This is the kind of person that a premiere university can bring in. Columbus is a great city with a world class university.

    They’ll probably just charge it all to the most conservative student.

    looks like the stage, video and sound budget just went up about $50,000.

    Next week the university announces tuition increases, salary caps for the football team, pay increase for bowtie man and football staff.

    I think things like having a national figure (a sitting president) speak at commencement helps to further OSU’s prestige. I think things like this increase the value of my diploma even though I graduated a few years ago.

    If someone wanted to sell their tickets, how much do you think they could get?

    It looks like $75 at the present and will only go up…

    Ohio State grads’ pleas for tickets commence

    Although her family would be willing to spend “however much it takes” on the tickets, Stiteler said, as of last night she hadn’t heard from any potential sellers.
    Another poster — Sasha Emerman, 21, of Cleveland — had heard from a seller, but the seller turned down her offer of $40 a ticket, she said, because someone else had offered more.
    She finds the notion of paying extra for tickets unsettling, she said, but would pay up to $75 so her stepdad and boyfriend can see her graduate along with her mom, dad, sister and grandma.
