Higher Education throughout the United States has become highly commercialized and now being run like a business. They claim that they are non-profit but continue to be influenced and swayed by corporate america- selling coca cola in the hallways, accepting advertisements from corporate sponsors in athletic programs, and allowing banks to infiltrate campus events promoting nearly predatory lending. Most of the schools and admins don't seem to care as long as they are getting kickbacks.

Unfortunately, the commercialization of academia is bringing some unintended consequences rippling throughout the ivory towers they want to influence.

Most of the pay in academia today is a joke too. Lucky if I make $15k a year teaching philosophy. If you're a football coach though, you can make a ton of money. Ironically, neuroscience has proven that football can destroy the brain.

Also seeing administration ballooning nearly out of control and most of the faculty getting the short end of the stick. Higher Ed. today has become all about the money it seems.
