From: WC Maddox

At Auburn the Physics Dept. receives lab fee money from the College of
Science & Math based on how many students are in the labs each semester.
It is used to buy equipment for introductory physics labs, astronomy lab
and advanced lab. Previously the advanced lab had to depend on whatever
it could get from faculty labs.
