Just came across this list of the 10 "richest" schools in the nation (public and private), based on endowment.
10. Texas A&M - $7.0 billion
9. Northwestern - $7.2 billion
8. Columbia - $7.8 billion
7. Michigan - $7.8 billion
6. MIT - $9.7 billion
5. Stanford - $17 billion
4. Princeton - $17.1 billion
3. Texas - $17.2 billion
2. Yale - $19.4 billion
1. Harvard - $31.7 billion
Pretty crazy that they have that much. They currently have 18 construction projects in process on campus that total over $560 million. They spend a lot on research, so they get a lot of support from different industries and corporations. In 2011 they spent $706 million, which was 3rd in the nation for schools without a medical school (behind only MIT and UC-Berkley).
Anyway, my wife is an Aggie, which is why I live in Texas and not Atlanta, so it was interesting to me. But since they are part of the SEC now, I thought I'd throw it out there.
Oil money does not hurt, Rice U in Houston has more than any other SEC school also

A&M is expanding their stadium too. It's supposed to seat over 103,500, which is going to cost around $450 million.
