Telecommunication costs continue to grow annually as the importance of networking mushrooms. This is particularly significant since the College's revenue from the resale of long distance telephone service is diminishing.

Media expenses are unusually high this year because of the Tang Museum. It is expected to return to more normal levels in future years.
