Renting Castles

Speaking of fat in university budgets… this blurb caught my attention while looking up stuff from a show I’m watching.

Dalkeith Palace has not been lived in by the Buccleuch family since 1914 and has been leased to the University of Wisconsin system for a study abroad program since 1985. Approximately 60-80 students a semester live in the palace, where they also take classes from U.S. and U.K. faculty members.

    Nice little racket.  The kids pay a LOT of money to go and the faculty rides for free–along with their spouses or whatevers.

    Not surprised. But liberals always cry poor.
