People keep getting canned around here, they just let like ten more people go. But not ME! nope...I still here muaahaaha. They let our build-out manager go, John, who's office is next door to mine. I was waiting for him to go, I knew they were spending way too much money for him to be here anyway. Poor guy, he's 60 though, I don't think it will be easy for him to find another job. He'll get unemployment for awhile, and he's old enough to get his social security back I think.
All of us staff had a meeting today about the school's expendages. They basically said that the school might be doomed forever, but they are optomistic about trying to make it NOT be doomed. We are 12 million dollars in the whole. And it will take us well over 20 years to get out. Our president just recently resigned, so now we are presidentless AND broke. Our vice president is taking over Terry Coffman's (President) position until we find another. But who would want to represent a broke-ass college?
Our main problem?? NO state or federal funding. This is a private college, not to mention that it's an art school, and next to medical school, art college is one of the most expensive kinds of schooling one can get.
We NEED cash.
