    This is ISU Foundation money which will never be used to lower tuition. You can argue it should go to other projects though.

    Re: ISU spending 90,000 dollars for new carpet for the Iowa State's President' Mansio

    Read the article - the money is coming from DONATIONS! How about you do a little more research on what the ISU Foundation does for the college.

    The Knoll building, ISU’s presidential residence, received approval for $375,000 in funding from donations to the Iowa State Foundation

    Don't they constantly have dinners for donors, profs, business leaders, etc. that involve lots of people? Don't you want something a little bit nicer than the crap carpet in most mobile homes? Aren't Mansions Big?

    Like he said, it's private money and they won't use it to lower tuition. Plus the board of regents unanimously approved the expenditure.

    If you don't like it, tough. You don't get a say unless you get nominated to a Board of Regents chair.

    Who cares you insecure hicks. Its the president's mansion and they host a lot of higher level dinners and events. Its a big house. I would hope they are keeping it very nice.

    Nah, it's going to be the same stuff in the dorms. Actually the high cost is because the carpet was from towers, so they have to take the asbestos out of it before they can reinstall.

    Regents approve $90,000 for new carpet | Des Moines Register Staff Blogs

    The current carpet is 23 years old and covers the floor where formal functions are often held. ISU officials estimate that more than 200,000 people have walked on the 2,700-square-foot carpet.
    This isnt the carpet in your bedroom. It has to be high wear and look good.

    200,000 over 23 years. Must have had a hell of a sign in sheet.
