USI response is an absolute joke. Roshon tries to basically say that USI is actually Ivy Tech with this statement:
I want everyone to remember that USI has a very significant number of students who work many hours a week to make ends meet. We don’t have that kind of resource at my fingertips to identify a payday for any entity or organization to move us to that kind of membership.
Now remember, USI has over 11,000 students, the majority of them are full time students, and a significant number are paying the majority of their costs to go there.
Hall’s response, to be honest, makes no sense:
I understand why people have to ask the question, I just think at this time, it’s best for us to be in Division II
The Screaming Eagles will continue to compete for conference and national championships. The focus won’t change, Hall said. Plus, there’s the new 4,800-seat arena to promote interest.
Why bring up the new arena? What does that matter in any context of this article??? Guess that they want to hide behind the cost of the move to hide the fact that they don’t even have the cahones to make the move in the first place.
USI deserves every bit of criticism they get for this. I’m done with them. Good riddance.
Side note: I graduated from USI (ashamed to say this now), and donate when I can. So, don’t @ me for my reactions and statements. I also guess I can find a better use for my few dollars then in a higher ups pocket instead of making a smart business move.
Their responses are laughable. The current administration at USI is a clown show
