​Washington University announced today that it will soon be $25 million richer, thanks to a generous gift from the founder of Enterprise Rent-a-Car, Jack Taylor.

The money will go toward undergraduate scholarships. Taylor made a similar $25 million gift in 2001 -- the largest scholarship donation ever made to the school.

"A gift such as this is a transformative one," said Wash U. chancellor Mark Wrighton in a statement today. "While we can measure the impact in terms of numbers of students we help, the true benefits are immeasurable and will have lasting effect."

This just in:

The new scholarship recipients have announced a hunger strike... They say that they will not eat until Enterprise Rent-A-Car changes it's rental fleet to 100% Electric Vehicles.

"The earth is warming, and vehicle emissions are one of the largest causes" says Chad, a freshman environmentalist and new recipient of the scholarship. "But they [Enterprise] are only concerned about the bottom line. They refuse to do anything about it..."

When reminded that electric cars only have a traveling distance of about 40-50 miles on a single charge, which would severely limit the use of a rental vehicle, Chad's eyes gazed to a different place, and possibly, a different time. He took a sip of his Khaldi's coffee and whispered, "Che..."

Well I wish while Jack Taylor is giving 25 million dollars to Washington University that he put some of that money into providing tuition reimbursement for his employees.

@your momma: I see you are poorly informed, or naive. Which is it? Those schools that I listed are run by religious orders....who don't have nuthin' to do with making gold fixtures for the Vatican. As far as sexual abuse, it certainly isn't limited to priests and religious brothers and sisters. It happens in the Jewish, Baptist and non-denominational ranks.I was educated by the Augustinians over 600 miles from ST Louis. None ever tried to stick their hands in my pants...and I don't know of any who tried (or were interested in trying)with my friends. It sounds like to me, your momma, that you would have enjoyed having someone play with your little swinger, but no one wanted to. Sorry about that. Maybe next time, little swinger.

Sorry, but I have to ask WHY so much to Wash U? It isn't as if they're scraping by....like other schools in the St. Louis area. Look around: SLUH, CBC, Vianny, St. Mary's, Desmet, St. Joes, St. Elizabeth's...the list goes on and on. These schools are scraping by, could each use an extra million bucks, and you can rest assured that the donation would be appreciated.

At Wash U, the rich are getting benefitted....and they don't need it!

Right.

Those who stand up against sexual abuse by priests all secretly want to be sodomized by them.

Flawless logic.

"SLUH, CBC, Vianny, St. Mary's, Desmet, St. Joes, St. Elizabeth's"

All of the schools you listed are Christan faith based schools. Wash U is secular, no?

Some of the schools you listed also have had religious faculty sexually abuse their students. Not sure catholic schools 'NEED IT' either, btw... just because they send all their money up to make more gold fixtures for the Vatican doesn't mean the institution is short on cash.
