Don't just blame CU


Colorado ranks in the BOTTOM FIVE of state support for higher education. Only 5% of CU funding comes from the State. You mention Georgia...they get DOUBLE the support from the state per student than Colorado.

For a public university that's trying to remain competitive (e.g. faculty salaries), they have few options other than tuition. And given the pandemic, it's only getting worse. And unlike a Georgetown, they don't have a $1.7 BILLION endowment to draw from.

CU simply can't afford to be more selective. A 78% acceptance rate is almost embarrassing...especially in an era where the most qualified kids are primarily concerned about prestige.

I wish it was different. But CU isn't solely at fault here.
