  1. “Belknap Is No Rosebud”

    Dr. Frame, criminology prof: “I did an extensive Google check. It seems UofL is indeed the most corrupt college of the 21st century.”

    Dr. Longfellow, poetry prof: “I felt it, I sensed it, I smelled it. The place stinks to high heaven.”

  2. Novena:

    Why would anyone give money to this faux university? Is it possible that this ‘gifting’ is b.s. too — just like most of the rest of the place? Has anybody actually looked into the question of the actuality of the donors (or is the Foundation merely ‘estimating’ what the buildings the taxpayers are funding for them via TIFs are worth)?

  3. Well UofL is just like the City Administration and the Metro Council,,,they all get away with murder, the screw who they want and Do what They want, how and when they want! The system is tainted and corrupt .
