Time to audit Cal Poly!

comment

Ever wonder what Cal Poly spends your hard-earned tax dollars on, as nearly 78 percent of its $180 million annual budget comes from the state general fund? That’s nearly $11,000 per student!

Ever wonder why there is a major shortfall of student housing (15,000 beds) on campus?

Ever wonder why the westside and Foothill areas of SLO are overcrowded with students, cars, and noisy all-week all-night parties?

Ever wonder why the real estate prices and rents have skyrocketed in SLO, and which professors/administrators and parents are profiting from the overcrowded and expensive rental properties around campus?

Wouldn’t it be nice if the local journalists and free press would do some real home-town investigative reporting to find out answers to some of these intriguing questions?
