$29.4 Million

That is what is costs to buy a school. That is in essence what the Jordan family has done. A family that has never been to CSU Fresno but know a retired professor decided to donate $29.4 million dollars to the Ag Sciences and Technology school. Now it is being renamed. Is it obvious to anyone else that this family/trust was just shopping for a legacy? Fresno State, I guess that this means we all know what you are and that we are just settling on a price.

The money will probably do some good (if we can keep it away from the lawsuit settlement payouts) but the whole thing leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Don't tell me this is how it is done because I don't care. I don't know why it bothers me so but it does.
