Why is College Tuition So Expensive?

College tuition is expensive due to many factors. Facility support, property taxes, faculty salaries (plus benefits) as well as the support staff required to run a school are major expenses in a college budget. Athletic teams, housing, food programs, as well as continual upgrading of technology and equipment all result in higher costs for a school. Higher costs equal higher tuition. If you stop to think of what is provided at a college, it really seems more reasonable.
