I Have Not Donated

They can have a donation once I finish getting through all of the student loans it cost me to go there.

I went to a small liberal arts school in New England that did essentially nothing for me in terms of finding a job. This is after I, or more appropriately my parents, paid 50k a year. So no they are not receiving a dime for at least the next decade

A certain university,that calls the blocks around Washington Square Park it's home, calls me regularly with the same spiel that the OP posted above. I am yet to meet a student there who received any kind of aid from the school so I personally think it's all a hoax to collect more tax-free $$$. How else would they pay for the iPads they use to show if a room is in use or not. Or for the Mac Pros the receptionists use to post their next Facebook status.

If my university actually helped me land my job sure, but our career center folks never bothered helping with networking or resume writing

If your Alma Mater is one of those that teaches kids to be entitled "cupcakes", require safe spaces and trigger warnings. Better think twice. More and more Kids coming out of such schools are ill prepared for the harsh realities of life and the gifts they have simply by being born.
