They must think we are a bunch of rubes

North Dakota State University President Dean Bresciani suggested a solution to the student activity fees debacle in a radio interview: Merely show tuition and fees as one figure instead of itemizing. Then parents and students could compare them with other universities more easily.

Talk about transparency! I guess he thinks NDSU prospects and their parents can’t add. Tom Plough, Jim Ozbun and now Bresciani – they must really consider us a bunch of rubes. Oh wait, I guess we are! The state Board of Higher Education hired them.
