I can only image how angry those paying tuition to this school feel.

I'm beginning to wonder about asking for a refund on my diploma.

The crazy thing is that if this happened here in LA, I think people would be more excited to see their name up and that they got a discount (vs. the GM price)! I feel for EvilDave and disappointed because it is a bit crazy. However, no matter what the different tax statuses, even schools are businesses.

Change the mascot to something intimidating, like a lawyer waving a summons.
