I went to an in-state “public ivy”, also in the early 70s. My annual tuition was $500. In-state tuition at the same university today is about $15,000 per year. Paying for college is a different, and vastly more expensive, proposition today than it was when you and I went.

And, the student gets no useful education, only indoctrination. Sounds like good reasons to bag the whole idea to me.
Having said that, I put both of my kids through state universities.
The son is a Deputy Sheriff with 4 kids in Podunk, USA making $17 an hour. The daughter is an engineer with a large defense contractor making 6 figures. She has no spouse, no kids, no pets, no houseplants, no debt and is having a grand old time.
