Back to School with the Porsche Cayenne
Field observation. I began teaching my courses yesterday. My office is on the margins of our campus but yesterday my teaching brought me to the center of the action. During my before-and-after class moments, I observed three different undergraduates driving new Porsche Cayennes (temporary tags still showing). I similarly saw two students driving new Audi Q7. With prices ranging from $50,000 to over $100,000, these get-around-campus cars cost more than many fine full professors earn in salary for a year. The asking price could also feed all of the struggling graduate students I work with for a year. Just saying.
