NDSU Students Say ‘No’ to Student Fee Increase for Athletic Dept.

It might be a relatively small school, and the vote may seem minor, but it actually was fairly important in the grand scheme of “Why-Pay-Less?” spending in college athletics departments across the nation.

The North Dakota State athletics department had sought to increase student fees in order to fund what the department claimed were increased travel costs. But the Student Advisory Board voted last week to reject the department’s request. Over the last several decades, many Athletics Directors have been quick to use additional student fees to pay for the ever-expanding size of athletic budgets — and the NDSU decision by the its students is one of the few in which the student body has vetoed any such effort.
