Lynn University spent approximately five million dollars to host tonight’s final presidential debate, the president of the university revealed in an interview earlier today on MSNBC’s Morning Joe.

He later added that the school has raised a little over half of the money back.
Ross also noted that the debate has generated excitement on campus that is unrivaled in the university’s history.
“It’s amazing,” he said. “Our entire community is united… I’ve never seen anything like this.”
