Back to school

I'm not sure why alumni magazines exist, but I have a lifetime subscription to the UCLA one, presumably because my parents donated an undisclosed sum of money to the school in my name.

I saw this on the back cover of the July 2006 issue of UCLA Magazine:

Introducing the Bruin Family Experience
August 10-13, 2006

Enjoy a four-day vacation at UCLA including all meals, lodging and fun-filled activities.

Take advantage of all that UCLA has to offer: recreational facilities, museums, educational lectures and more!

Alumni pride has its limits, and using vacation days to return to college and attend lectures is one of them.

Seriously, what a terrible idea.
