Oh, what to do with two-and-a-half-billion dollars. The problem doesn't seem perplexing unless you're from the University of Illinois in which case your fundraising efforts must now be carried out carefully. UI officials are currently reviewing which areas at the school need to be addressed now and in the future.

The big question is how to make good use of the two-point-four-billion dollars raised through its recent "Brilliant Futures" fundraising campaign. The university says the money comes at a good time as the state of Illinois is not expected to restart contributions for some time.
