On Sunday, we brought you the news that a college campus board of trustees was planning to spend $600,000 on a trip to Florida to wrap up with a $1,000 trip to a Florida golf course, according to The Daily Beast.
The board of Trustees of the University of Miami is expected to meet with the Trump administration on Thursday to finalize the terms of a deal that would allow the board to go to the Florida golf courses on behalf of the U.S. government.
The college board is not the only college board in the country to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on trips to places such as golf courses.
On Tuesday, the Board of Trusts of the National Collegiate Athletic Association, which includes every major college football conference, paid $3.5 million to visit Washington, D.C., in 2019 for a golf tournament, and the board of the American Athletic Conference, which represents all of college football, paid a similar sum in 2019 to visit the White House.
A spokesperson for the Board said it did not have a statement regarding the Trump golf trip.
The American College Tour Association, the largest tour company in the world, paid more than $7.5-million for a trip in 2018 to the Whitehouse.
The College Board, however, has not yet issued a statement on the Trump trip.
