We'd all like to think we made enough of an impression on our alma matar that school officials would want the campus to somewhere bare our name. Wouldn't it be nice to have a library or classroom building named after you? If you haven't made it big since graduating, don't flush the dream down the toilet just yet -- there could be a bathroom out there with your name on it.
Several college campuses are offering up restrooms as a namesake -- for a price, of course. Dixie State College of Utah is a recent example, asking $2,000 in exchange for the naming rights for indivdual stalls in a campus building bathroom, according to Inside Higher Ed. Unfortunately, though, the offer didn't prove enticing and Dixie got no donors.
It's not just cash strapped schools that seeking out the opportunity. William Falik recently donated $100,000 to Harvard Law School for the Falik Men’s Room. A couple donated $20,000 for a pair of his and her bathrooms at Utah Valley University.
Other schools can't get comfortable with the idea -- venture capitalist Brad Feld tried to have a restroom named after him at Massachusetts Institute of Technology but officials declined his offer. Instead, he went with option number two and finally got his namesake restroom at the University of Colorado at Boulder science building after donating $25,000.
