Melissa Allen, United States7 years ago Comments: The former president's salary increase was ridiculous. He did nothing for this university, students nor the faculty/staff. He did not deserve that at all. Unlike our current president Friedman, Caputo didn't care about anything but himself and his money. The tuition increase that was made was ridiculous, although I was not affected by it. Such a drastic increase in the tuition caused Pace to lose many prospective students. Nevertheless, I know that Friedman will be the man to turn everything around and do things the way they were suppose to be done.
