WPI is begging for money again.

One thing is for sure, they won't be getting it from me or nightskyre any time soon.

I counted four exclamation points in the short message, three of them after a variation of "We need your support more than ever!" The tuition you charge in excess of $40,000 per year isn't enough? I can't afford to support you, WPI, I'm still working on supporting myself. Someday, when the student loans are paid, I will give to WPI. I liked it there. I would recommend it to my younger relatives, if I thought they could afford the debt burden it would cause.

I guess that's really my question for WPI and the Alumni Relations/Giving office: Why should my money go to you instead of towards my student loans?

I get those all the time at home, and my sister started getting them before she even graduated. They need money, but they are begging from the wrong people.

I'd recommend WPI too... if you have 2 or 3 kids in college and you have a lot of aid. My sister is the #1 reason I was able to afford the tuition. Without her I'd be paying thousands more. And I'm still in crazy debt even with our split pot family contribution!
