  • PUTTING ON THE RITZ: UMASS HITS THE BIG APPLE

         UMass officials "spared no expense," in entertaining
    supporters and school staff during the college basketball Final
    Four weekend -- spending all but $15,438 of the $227,328 it is
    slated to receive in revenue and reimbursements from the NCAA,
    according to the BOSTON GLOBE.  David Armstrong reports UMass
    Chancellor David Scott's complimentary $450-a-night suite at the
    Sheraton Manhattan alone showed almost $8,500 in food and laundry
    costs, while administrators spent "at least" $50,000 to "wine and
    dine each other" along with hundreds of alumni, donors and
    politicians.  School officials say the money was spent to
    "promote good will," which they expect to help increase donations
    and support for the university.  Associate Chancellor Susan
    Pearson:  "We anticipate that the excitement generated by the
    event, and the hospitality we were able to extend the
    university's many supporters, will rebound to our considerate
    benefit, financially and otherwise."  Expenses for the team,
    which stayed at a Marriott Hotel closer to the Meadowlands, were
    "modest."  Charges included team meals at McDonald's and Dominos,
    movie tickets and $20 for gum and juice (BOSTON GLOBE, 6/13).
