Is money really the answer for just about every problem? I know it is needed, but this almost exclusive focus on the endowment as a panacea seems a bit simplistic. I am sure there will be more to this story that will be shared, but this does at least show we may be seeing TPTB looking in new directions.
I agree. As I wrote " Money does not guarantee a great school." And I added (correctly in my view,) " ...without more money you can't have the kind of elite school HC was & claims to be." Then I fleshed it out. Simplistic in the ideas, certainly not. Simplistic in the understanding? Possibly a closer reading would have resulted in a clearer understanding. Peace.

Good creative ideas MM67. HC does seem to have a shy group of faculty (happy to be enlightened on this) as they will get quoted in the T&G when a reporter inquires on a subject but I can't recall a Holy Cross Prof being interviewed on CNN or other national outlets. And of course we have no Marist Poll or St. Anselm's Presidential debate or anything like that to establish Holy Cross as a college in the public's mind not a shrine or a seminary. Leave it to Coach Chesney to do the heavy lifting of publicizing Holy Cross if we can get into the FCS playoffs and do some damage.
“We do have to evolve and listen to the signs of the times. It’s to see and understand that this isn’t the Holy Cross your grandfather went to, it’s not the Holy Cross your father or mother went to. It’s going to be a Holy Cross that is for the 21st century."
