Administrators at a public university are spending at least $200,000 this semester purchasing Apple iPads for student-athletes, a Campus Reform investigation has revealed.

Each athlete at California State University – Fresno (CSUF) has received, or is slated to receive, the pricey device, courtesy of money obtained through the National Collegiate Athletics Association’s Student Athlete Opportunity Fund.

The special fund from the NCAA is designated for athletes who have special needs, NCAA spokeswoman Emily Potter told Campus Reform on Monday.

    At first glance, I misread that, thinking that it said ipads for atheists; a perhaps more thought-provoking topic.

    Good thing their grades got them into college. This is discirminatory against anyone who ever studied.

    Maybe the NCAA should’ve used some of that money to pay the balance towards students who think I should pick up the tab on their student loans.
