That operating budget has nothing to do with that debt brought on. Some of the rest of the difference between 10.1 and 5.3 might be...but...explain the 1.9 extra million it takes just to operate JMU's program.
They also get something like 38 million dollars a year from student fees alone. NDSU's total budget for the entire department is almost a third less than what JMU takes in from just student fees.
JMU complaining about other schools funding in any way, shape, or form, is just laughable.
