But it is not at all the case that the money made and spent in athletics could have gone to the philosophy or English departments. It doesn't work that way at all.
The Panthers, now in their sixth season, haven’t given fans much reason to celebrate. In the 2013 and 2014 seasons, competing at the highest level of the National Collegiate Athletic Association, the team recorded just a single victory. Average attendance last year was among the 10 worst in the NCAA’s top level. Yet Georgia State’s 32,000 students are still required to cover much of the cost. Over the past five years, students have paid nearly $90 million in mandatory athletic fees to support football and other intercollegiate athletics — one of the highest contributions in the country.
There is a larger CC offering more liberal arts courses about 40 minutes from where I live, but it has a graduation rate of 13% and offers exactly 5 courses in chemistry, two of which a student who'd taken AP Chem would automatically test out of. It has 3 courses each in French, Spanish and German, one of which is a course for absolute beginners.
Only three semesters of each foreign language is one short of the four semesters that would be expected to be offered at the beginner / intermediate level in a common foreign language.
The first in a two-semester algebra/trigonometry-based physics sequence. Emphasis is placed on understanding through problem solving. Topics include the metric system, kinematics, Newton’s laws, momentum, energy, power, rotation, buoyancy and simple harmonic motion
3 classes over the course of 2 years doesn't really seem great for a prospective major.
Due to accreditation and academic requirements, students admitted into a Combined Major associated with the College of Computer and Information Science cannot change the college affiliation for their major.
