Record Setting Budget Approved At UK

The Board of Trustees at the University of Kentucky have approved a record-setting budget for the next school year.

The budget of more than 2 billion dollars includes more than 35 million dollars targeted at keeping students at UK.

The budget represents a 180 million dollar increase over last year.

Students will be footing part of the bill for the record budget. Next year, in-state tuition will go up by nine percent.

    I'm glad my child chose a private, Christian school for college. I don't think I could have afforded UK.

    Tuition goes up, mediocre education stays the same...

    I just love when the UK President gets his bonus. The students are always given a tuition increase for the next school year. Then they purchase property that ALWAYS ends up costing more more more. May be they should consider taxing the air theat students breathe.

    this makes sense, 35 million targeted to keep students at UK then making them pay for it, maybe the 9 percent tuition increase is the reason they are leaving. making them pay the cost to promote them to stay, this sounds like some logical thinking or does it?
