    Interesting evidence of how a major university helps a local economy.

    Havig a car manufacturer greatly impacts a community as well. Having a university of 40,000 greatly impacts Austin.

    Having Microsoft in WA greatly impact trhe Seattle area.

    John Deere tractor in Waterloo and Moline greatly impacts those communities.

    Having Tyson Foods in a communitgy gives a lot of people work in a community.

    You lost me on your analogies, gb.

    For those of us familiar with the animosity that the city and that newspaper have had with all things associated with Falwell over the years, that story is pretty amazing stuff. In fact, they've even posted an Op-Ed piece singing LU's praises in the past week or so. I guess its better late than never.

    Businesses, universities, and any other entity which employs people will have an effect on the city it is in. Because of that real estate prices are also higher.

    I'd like to attend Liberty University...God willing. Didn't LU recently align or partner with the SBC?
