Question
CofO has a lot of potential; however, theQuite Bright
CofO has a lot of potential; however, the they need to replace the administrators with ones that care about the school and students and not building North Korean of the ozarks. Goodwill that the school does have is attributable to former administrators. Unfortunately, the current admin. has tarnished that image. I don't know a single alum that would give a dime to CofO and as far as donors, they made their decision to give back when Graham Clark was the president. If you care to check that out, look at their 990's (federal tax form for non-profits). CofO used to receive 20-25 million per year, however, their last few 990's have been under 10 million. As far as admission into CofO, well, it doesn't have anything to do with the ACT or grades. Decisions are made on income because CofO gets the 10 grand from fed and state grants, plus the students work on campus. Most could attend a state school for free on their pell and state grants. If those students wanted to work 15 hours a week at a real job, not weaving baskets or making fruitcakes, that income would be spending money.

Question
Ahhh, COFO.Criminal
Ahhh, COFO....what a hypocritical joke. First, theere'e the pretending to be "christ like" while the administration judges and condemns people. Take for instance the kid who committed suicide in the vice presidents garage because he was persecuted as a suspected homosexual. Then there's the Administrator Larry Cockrum who bought his PhD from a diploma mill and was kept on at full salary after being exposed. The professor who exposed him was unfairly terminated. Lets not forget the Dean of Students who spent all his time on witch hunts looking for gays and intoxicating substances while his own wife was whoring it up as a drunken slut all over town. That lead to a nice little divorce for the upstanding "christ like" washed up basketball player. Dont waste your time or money on this place. It will soon be exposed for what it truly is. There is a current audit and investigstive report being prepared for airing on a well known news show.
