The University is on a transition path to becoming more of a corporate entity.I feel this is good for research but not so good for education and the student spirit.Students treat college as a buffer between school and job to be insulated from politics and money play.I am afraid that buffer is eroding.

SOme departments(not all) tend to get more bureaucratic with size
