College Tuition: Expensive by Design
Beats me, but maybe this custom hand made pane of glass with inlaid beads, gems and etched poetry- just installed at a famous New England Ivy League School Addition- has some answers. I'll find out the total cost paid by the school eventually. Any guesses? This glass covers both sides of a pedestrian bridge between buildings. The surfaces of the outer layers of glass are also etched to look like a hand print, when viewed from outside. How long before a disgruntled student who can't make tuition, lets a brick fly through it? I will laugh my f-ing ass off.
