Here’s everything you can buy with Gene Block’s annual salary

Guess how many replacement BruinCards it would get you

The Chronicle of Higher Education just released a report announcing the executive salaries at public and private schools. Our very own chancellor Gene Block reportedly makes over $446,000 a year.

The annual salaries on this list range from $7,000 to $1.5 million, and Gene falls right around the middle. Does he deserve every cent? Probably – being a daddy to thousands of UCLA students isn’t cheap. Should he earn more? Not after he’s raised tuition again.

What I can tell you is that as struggling, broke college students, that salary means a lot to us. Here’s a list of some of the things we could buy with $446,851.

1) 64,295 chocolate chunk pizookies from BJ’s
