WSU students balk at paying higher fees to balance athletic department budget - Chad Sokol, Spokesman

Administrators have asked students to consider paying an additional $50 per semester to help bring the athletics department into the black. The department has been operating at a $13 million deficit since 2014, partly because of higher coaching salaries, an expensive new football facility and lower-than-projected TV revenue. “With the athletics department messing up and not being able to budget properly, it’s not fair for students to have to pay for that,” said Jordyn Beckford, a senator in the student government. “No student wants to pay more. With tuition, books, mandatory fees, it’s already really expensive.” http://www.spokesman.com/stories/2016/sep/23/wsu-students-balk-at-paying-higher-fees-to-balance/
