The Fort Wayne Journal Gazette ran an article recently noting that Indiana University ranks in the top ten among all U.S. colleges and universities in private-sector gifts and grants in fiscal year 2010 (who’s fiscal year is not clear, seem like there could be several different ones involved).
Given that I attended I.U., I think this is pretty cool. I must admit I find it a bit hard to believe, but hey, who am I to say.
The really interesting part of this is that I.U. has achieved this level of gifts while both the football and the basketball teams suck (there is no other way to say it).
