I work at a University and it is "highly encouraged" that you contribute....
I gave them all kinds of money for tuition while I was going to school there. Now they still want to suck me dry even after I'm gone? I don't get this practice at all....stop bothering me!!
And while you were in school, you benefitted from the donations of previous graduates. Those donations help your program pay for your education. Pay it forward.
I agree with dipweed, give them your hard earned or borrowed cash over 4 or 5 years, then when you get your degrees and walk into the placement office, they have no idea who you are. Can't blame them as they continue to graduate 5 people for every job and they know there are not enough positions for all the graduates. So you graduate and all you have is student loan debt in many instances.
I paid my tuition. My husband paid his tuition. We helped our kids with tuition. No loans. All employed in his/her field. Done.
I used to be able to afford to donate but since my property taxes have doubled in the last ten years, that money now goes to pay for whatever waste of money the small group of people who run Lawrence deems necessary. I feel like I'm living in The movie Road House and there is no Dalton in sight. It's actually much worse than that because instead of one Brad Wesley, Lawrence has about 10. Let's give out some more awards to people for misleading the public to convince than to vote for stuff they don't need. Oh the best part of all this, none o these wastes of money has contributed one iota to the employment situation in Lawrence or helped the real estate market (unless you own property on Mass). You can't leave this place if you want to.
