Princeton Won’t Raise Tuition
http://www.columbiaspectator.com/news/2007/01/23/News/Princeton.Wont.Raise.Tuition-2668618.shtml

“This year, Columbia tuition charges amounted to $45,444, the most in the Ivy League. The University will announce the tuition for the coming school year in June.”

And the guy who bought and is upping the rents in Stuyvesant Town and elsewhere is a former Columbia board chair (he has been replaced by his son):

Sadly, money through real estate (and tuition) seems to be the name of the game for those who run Columbia.  I wish that this were not so, but so it seems to be — as it was in the dark days of brutal Columbia expulsion of its rental tenants that so many well remember on these lists.  I wish we could expect better, but I see no sign of gain apart from a cooler pr effort to placate the skeptical.
