    Yup, it's great, and donations to a university program are nothing but good. I just thought it was funny that the kids would rather fight over 3 cameras than figure out how to pick up something dirt cheap themselves.

    If I had a spare camera I'd donate it. I have two actually, but they are in such poor condition (a broken shutter on one, gummed up shutter curtains on the other) that I wouldn't give them to my worst enemy.

    Sure thing Jordan! After reading the article this morning, I emailed the art department to see what they were looking for. She said they were primarily looking for 35mm equipment, but would be willing to take anything. Anything they wouldn't be able to use would be passed along to other schools.

    On an unrelated note, I'll be up in Edmonton in the summer sometime. We should meet up!

    Not just that, but even if the university was getting funding from the government, a majority of it would be divided up and spread towards areas that make for nice front page material, ie: medical research, technology, engineering, etc... "Undergrad still uses film!" doesn't make for exciting news, unfortunately.
