    It's more than just books. It costs big bucks to run a university. I worked for the University of Calif. Irvine and before we put in a cogen plant the monthly bill for just electricity was $3,000,000 dollars a month. That's just for one utility for one month. The yearly costs for running the university facilities ran into the billions.  As a side note, when we wanted to put in the cogen plant, So. Calif. Edison fought it tooth and nail for years. They didn't want to lose the money. We finally forced them to ALLOW us to put one in but with the condition that we still had to buy at least 5% of our power from them no matter what.

    If you think education is expensive, try ignorance
