that is weird they put a 1.1 Billion dollar endowment on the kids and it is only for the wealthy kids and that is so cruel just letting the weathy kids have most of the campus to themselves, that is what i was wondering if they are going to make any changes.

copus - I'm pretty sure this particular school is aimed at providing affordable education to low-income students. They are at least in part able to do this because of the endowment.

well i know that and i don't see if it allows the wealthy or all of the above?
