Video of the day: Where do your tuition dollars go?

Colorado State University has gone video crazy. Just days ago, CSU shared a clip of mascot Cam the Ram training for the Rocky Mountain Showdown -- which didn't really work out, given the CU Buffs surprisingly comfortable win. Now, the school has released what it describes as an "artistic video" in which a new-grad illustrator helps CSU president Tony Frank explain why tuition for average student Cam the Ram (yes, him again) costs so damn much. Will it make sticker shock sting any less? Decide for yourself by watching the video below.
