Wait until they figure in Slice's buyout in 2017.

Ha... maybe Lavin's salary is not included yet either if they are working on Financials a year or two prior.

At least they sold the Oakdale campus.

Good to see improvement at least via the methodology used here by Forbes.

I've been a very vocal critic of bobby g as president. I still believe he was a horrible choice but to his credit has done a very good job at holding the line on costs and improving our financial stability.

it's a major concern that a Nova or Gtown, who have much stronger donor bases than sju are only graded a B.

What's surprisng is that G'Towns endowment is only around the $1.5 billion area.

One would think it would be a lot higher.

In addition, I don't think Nova has surpassed the $1 billion as of yet, although Beast would know better.

SJU is roughly around the $650 million mark, give or take

I believe SJU endowment has to be in the 700 million dollar range now. Also, im not so sure Nova base is stronger. Maybe more enthusiastic, but I doubt stronger. Georgetown numbers are a no brainer.
