Ohio State officials also recommended the university's parking operations should be leased to an Australian company for $483 million over a 50-year contract.  The university says taking the parking operation private would provide more than $3 billion in investment earnings to hire more faculty, provide more student aid and pay for the university's bus services.  Some students have expressed concerns about increases in fees and fines.  More details on the lease can be found here: http://www.osu.edu/news/newsitem3437
