Why does every alum group I've been on suddenly insist doing a "zoom catch up"? And subsequently posting it on Instagram. Why?

Job networking

Ppl are getting furloughed. That's why

Because alumni groups are trying to show how connected they are in times of crisis so prospective students think, “This alumni base will really care about me” before growing up and realize every organization has its own agenda,

Desperate extroverts at the helm. A moment of empathy and silence for busybodies stuck indoors.

Because donations have dried up and they’re trying to stay on the radar without asking for $ directly, which would obviously be tasteless right now.

I would like to keep it positive and upbeat. Ideas/suggestions welcome!

Are there any tests you can get done to understand your fertility? I have PCOS and cannot start trying until next year or two. I would like to know if there will be any issues with conceiving due to my PCOS. I’m 29 right now.

Has anyone ever gotten any fertility tests done to understand if you’ll have future issues?
