Inter-University Cooperation

Okay, this stems from having to spend more money than I needed to a couple of weeks ago:

You would think that Ohio University located in Ohio, would possibly work with a student (me) from Kent State (also located in Ohio) in purchasing academic-license software. Did I mention I’m an alumnus of Ohio University? Oh well, it cost me $30 more at the local student bookstore that was more than willing to accept my KSU id.

Maybe OU has a special deal where Microsoft that says they can’t sell to anyone that is off-campus. Maybe OU just plain doesn’t like to play well with other Ohio-based universities (i.e. Rufus tackling Brutus). That’s cool, I can almost understand that. But it still cost me $30 more.

It still irks me.
