Students at a public university in Ohio are spending more than double on athletics than their counterparts in most other states, according to a new report.
In Ohio, the University of Louisville spent more than $3,000 per student in 2016 on sports.
That figure dwarfs the average for the rest of the country, which is $2,600 per student, according the University at Buffalo’s sports spending report released Tuesday.
The report also showed that the average Ohio student spends $13,000 annually on athletics, far more than the national average.
The average Ohio public university student has an average debt of $20,800, according, the report said.
The average student at the University for the last six years has a $31,600 debt, which includes student loans.
That number also includes the debt for the cost of room and board and other expenses.
