UC students go ‘bold’ with critical website

Students at the University of Cincinnati are fed up with their administration spending too much money on endeavors peripheral to the academic mission, and have launched a new website airing their grievances.

At BoldyBankrupt.com, a play on the university’s slogan “Boldly Bearcat,” these student activists lay out a convincing case about the institution’s misplaced priorities and the detrimental effects to students and faculty.

The students’ goal in highlighting information on athletic deficits, administrative bloat, and the decline in tenure/tenure-track faculty, is to make the administration more transparent and accountable.

We applaud these students for raising awareness of these issues and demanding better. We hope more students begin to take a stand to defend their education, as too many of our other colleges and universities in Ohio have similar upside-down priorities.

Visit the website for more information: BoldlyBankrupt.com.
