Aren't institutions of higher learning supposed to be for learning and research rather than profit making? A filming company wants to film outside our building, and the university because it's their place, will give the department a very small percentage of the profit. This is on top of all the private homes they're building on campus, a place which is supposed to education, not profit making. Gone are the days when this was a place for learning and reasoning, instead, billionaires get to leave their mark by donating a ton of money (all of which is tax deductible I'm sure) and getting buildings named after them. It's a sad state of affairs as far as I'm concerned.
