That's fantastic that they raised that much money. Now that they've asked for the money, some undoubtedly from those that may not be able to spare much, how will they wisely use it??? PA Weekly, lets see that wonderful story!
Considering how much money they raise and how much they get in donations, why do they cut services and continually raise tuitions?
It'd be great if they used some of those funds to educate student cyclists on bike safety, came up w/more parking & replaced the new trees/shrubs that reduce visibility on the roads. Mundane but important. Oh, & any more Chihulys to be donated?
With that much money coming in from fundraising, why is Stanford becoming an aggressive off-campus developer?
For example, its plans for huge medical offices along El Camino in Menlo Park, its plans to get rent-income from the massive Arrillaga high-rises at 27 University Avenue, its building of single homes and high-end apartments on upper S. California Avenue (the Mayfield project, that will displace company employees to other cities).
How much money will Stanford ever be content with??
They will always want more as long as they are sending $90 rejection letters.
It's mathematical induction. Once they show that they can raise $1, then they show that for any amount x, they can raise x+1.
