One day I was walking on the USC campus and I noticed actor Paul Dooley right by Howard Jones Field.
He was trying to find a building where he was scheduled to speak and didn’t know where to go. I gladly offered to guide him to the building, just so I could talk about his most famous line from the movie, “Breaking Away.”
“Refund!?!” Dooley starts repeating when an Indiana student tries to return a lemon to his used-car lot. “Refund!?! Refund!?! Refund!?!”
It’s relevant today because that is the reaction of USC toward its students, as some are suing the university for not refunding tuition and fees after it canceled in-person instruction because of the coronavirus.
“Students have paid (USC) for access to buildings they can no longer enter, technology the University is not providing, activities that are not available, and meals that will never be served,” the lawsuit says.
Before any trolls jump in, the UC and Cal State systems were sued last week by students who can no longer use student centers, health facilities and other services paid for by fees.
- The Mike Bohn media tour continues!
Bohn did an eight-minute interview with Fred Roggin of Channel 4 and there was this little gem:
“Even members of the media have been very, very supportive in helping us understand the different challenges, and the relationships that needed to be expanded, and then obviously that has helped immensely in recruiting.”
Who is he referring to?
