No wonder college costs so much

Editor:

Recently Wright State announced the need to make several cuts to the budget, resulting in some students concern if their programs will be cut. I do not have anyone attending the college or working there.

I find it quite appalling the salary recently announced for the incoming President. A base salary of $425,000, $54,000 deferred compensation her first year, $42,500.00 expense to relocate from Rolla, MO, $36,000 annually for housing, $12,000 allowance for her vehicle, insurance as well as gas and $10,000 for a golf membership. The total salary and compensation is nearly double her currently salary, etc.

I would think she could find a cheaper rate to move and if she plays golf the membership should be at her expense.

I think the money they are spending should be spent wisely and this is not. No wonder it costs so much to attend college.
