Why can't we ever discuss something fun and something we should win. Like hottest coeds for example.

LOL...'cause we all know the hottest coeds are in South Florida, thus the rest of us would be depressed.

The hottest coeds come to rice because we're well-endowed.

RE: University Endowments
So basically Rice could triple each school's endowment and still be 4 times bigger than the second largest.

I've never really looked into how endowments are handled. I understand all the restricted/unrestricted stuff, but not the reasoning behind the accumulation of wealth by universities to a level beyond what they would ever conceivably need. Not saying Rice is necessarily there, but I find it hard to believe a school like Harvard actually ever needs to raise another dollar for anything.

Schools use the payout from endowments to fund various aspects of their mission, especially financial aid. The more money you have in your endowment, the more you can do without raising fees or getting grants.

Here is a really basic calculator that should help clarify the way they work
