    i think a great deal of that money is put in the university endowment coffers to be used over time. Of course, a good deal has been earmarked for various building improvements, setting up program chairs, scholarships, etc.

    Not really. Make no mistake, Campaign Iowa State has been a big success, but other peer universities have similar fund raising projects totaling well over $1 billion, even 2 bil.

    50 million in flood damage.

    75% of recovery funded by FEMA.

    12.5 million to be covered by ISU or the state.

    LOWER TUITION.

    The fund-raising was geared towards capital improvements that the university needs to get to work on. It had nothing to do with tuition at all, unless you want tuition to pay for those improvements, in which case it won't be lowering, anyway.
