Salisbury University Upping It's Bell Game

There are fewer than 200 traditional carillons in the country. The Eastern Shore will now have its own. The first truck load of 48 bells has arrived at Salisbury University including the two biggest bells made in England. The remaining, including the player console, are expected later today. Installation then starts! At 147 feet, the bell tower is the tallest structure on campus and believed to be the tallest enclosed structure in Wicomico County.

Why does SU need a carillon? And I can guarantee that the taxpayers are footing the bill for it, well over $2 million.

The carillon is being built without taxpayer money. It was donated by a man from Delaware in memory of his boyfriend.

Being installed to amuse the snowflakes!!!! What does this contribute to a college campus in way of learning???? Do they offer a carillon degree?

The people on the site might actually be the man and the people on A$$burro's site.

Taxpayer money: hey dickhead, it is being done with private money.

Locals can't afford: another dickhead - SU is the cheapest tuition of any MD State University. Also, if you live within 50 miles of the university you do not have to live on campus Check your facts, dickhead.

Value to education: you are so retarded you don't know how any of this stuff works. The atmosphere that this creates will draw many out-of-state students to come here, and pay out-of-state tuition. It is that kind of money that provides more scholarships for the students

You people really disappoint me – you have no critical thinking abilities. Maybe you should have gone to college.

They may be the cheapest tuition, but they rape you with all the fees they charge. Every time an new building is built it the fees are built into your tuition bill. I know, I have 3 degrees from there.

Fees are there for all the different services they provide: gym, counseling, intramural, etc.

Think fees are wasteful, but they are not there because a building goes up, or a bell gets in. You are just ignorant.

Gay people have a thing for bells. I thought everyone knew that!

Maybe they should have used this money towards education and saved the taxpayers some money down the road.
