Creative College Funding

A current auction on Ebay offers up a lifetime kickback on earnings for putting up $100,000 to pay for college.

The auction claims that Ron Steen will pay 2% of his annual earnings to anyone willing to give $100,000 towards his college education. His stated major is communications, and says he estimates his lifetime earnings at $30 million dollars.

While you have to admire his ambition, a potential investor would have to laugh at the promised payoff.

USU computer services confirmed that over the weekend approximately 15,000 emails from the same company were received by student and staff inboxes in just a few short minutes.

So long and thanks for all the fish(bowl) memories...

With the demise of the Utah State University Merrill library, comes the end of over forty years of student experiences in the building. One such memory is of the "Fishbowl", a large communal study area located on the third floor of the library. Granted, very little study occured there...


Hot Dog does what NCAA selection team didn't

- deny USU an NCAA tournament appearance, or at least nearly so :-) Sometime this morning, a bomb-sniffing dog triggered on a hot dog cart in the San Diego arena that USU will be playing at. While a false alarm, it will delay USU's game until 9:30pm MST. So tune in a little later than expected!
