Who’s paying for trip

To the Journal editor:

As an alumni of Northern Michigan University, I’m curious as to who is paying for the NMU soccer team trip to Europe?

If it is the individual team members, then I think it should be published and give them credit.

If it is the taxpayers, alumni or NMU supporters, then that also should be made public knowledge. If it is public funding paying for their expenses, are we not entitled to know the justifications for such experiences?

If the team members are paying their own way, it makes it easier to understand why so many people graduate from college, thousands of dollars in debt.
