I will say I am currently provided a uni education, I enjoy it, I learn from it (usually), my employer has expressly demanded it and I know the uni makes a profit. Not sure whether society gives a shit about me, though I do pay more tax than most my age. Does this count?
If your uni experience is what I am imagining (ADFA or similar maybe?), then you and your peers are very privileged and you are likely to be amongst the very few whose fees provide a "profit" for the university. If you looked at that same university's overall balance sheet I expect that they only recoup some of their costs through your attendance. If I am picturing something other than what you have referred to then my apologies and I'll bow out.
