    Not many costs can be absorbed by a university system. I don't know what type of operations you're thinking of. If it costs X to run a dining hall, that's what it costs. The fact that a school gets state funding doesn't affect expenditure numbers. Expenditure numbers tell you a good deal about where the college's resources are going and the kind of staff and faculty it can attract. That's comparable across LACs.

    You also have to factor in endowment, return on investments, etc.
