Use money for campus additions for academic scholarships instead.
Does anyone else think that all the additions being put onto campus are getting a little ridiculous? Our campus is already beautiful, and it seems that we have all the buildings and study areas we need. I think that instead of pouring millions of dollars into bell towers, alumni houses, and on-a-dry-campus Greek housing is money being poorly spent. If CNU has these millions at their disposal, that money should go toward scholarships--especially financial aid scholarships for kids in the Hampton Roads area that would not normally get a chance to go to a university. Elegant bricks, columns, and the name of campus benefactors in gold-leaf arching across a doorway...these things don't matter. Changing lives and giving kids in need futures they deserve...THAT matters.
Tuition money is NEVER used towards ANY of the buildings on campus. The funds come from private donations or is specifically allocated from the state. This money can NOT be used for scholarships because it has already been set aside for CNU buildings
I agree with this. While all of my friends of lower class rankings than me were being offered huge sums of money to go to their colleges of choice, I was rewarded for my academic excellence and commitment to CNU (the only college I applied to) with NO SCHOLARSHIPS other than the measly $1,000 a year for PLP which doesn't even make a dent in $22,000!!!! We need scholarships! Especially the lower middle class! We are hardly offered anything regarding financial aid based on our parent's "decent" incomes, which leaves me with tremendous debt!!
