If AUC goes bankrupt, do the desert rats inherit the new campus?

27 Oct

Apparently word of AUC’s fine mess is getting back to sources in the US. Here’s a link to an article from the Chronicle of Higher Education.

And when you’re done laughing about the desert rats, you can read the surprisingly good investigative reporting in the AUC student newspaper about how the university, in the fine tradition of other over-extended American institutions these days, is losing money hand-over-fist. From this point on, I’ll consider any paycheck I get a bonus.

    I think the part that stuck out the most to me was the section on bathrooms not working. Knowing how bad everything smells in August, can’t imagine it without plumbing. Hang in there!
