The Drake Group specifically calls for individual student tuition bills that are fully transparent listing the amount of the student fees and other general fund subsidies being used to fund athletics. David Ridpath, Chair of the Drake Student Fee Working Group, points to the fact that “This is an issue of access to higher education. Graduating seniors are leaving college with average student loans of $29,400 in 2012 — a 25 percent increase from $23,450 in 2008. At the very least, student fee and other institutional subsidies should not be increased without full disclosure.”
