Thanks for Anne D. Neal's commentary on the state of higher education today ("Campus cautionary tale," May 30). St. Mary's is a great example of the problems facing our nation as a result of misplaced priorities.
I have long bemoaned the money that is spent to make colleges and universities "feel like home" with apartment-style living and facilities that rival the best that money can buy. Enough! Let's put the dollars to work on real education and not on creating an expectation of luxury — both in school and when students graduate. Let's prepare them for real life.
Finally, where are the university regents that they have allowed this to happen in Maryland (and everywhere else).
