this is also not the way to have Alumni leave, and then we are gonna reach out to these students to support Beach in the future?!
seriously, they'll hang up the phone
first the mascot flub, that has had an impact on the Alumni Association ability to communicate and engage potential donors
I mean can't script a better way to first eliminate a generation of many legacy donors and now eliminate a generation of many future donors.
jeez, don't screw it up. once they leave with a bad taste, they won't be coming back.
I don't get this.
Would it really be so hard to arrainge to hold at campus, given past experience to hold it. I mean it's mainly setting up chairs and a stage, right?
Is it maybe cost, and maybe a high deposit for Anaheim Stadium, that the school could not get back, maybe it's as simple as they don't want to eat $100k + or so they've committed to? If so, just say so if it's really an economics decision. I think students could accept that.
Just 'logistics' is code word for laziness often in my experience. https://daily49er.com/news/2023/04/04/silent-administration-sparks-student-protest-over-graduation/
I mean if nothing else hold a series of Department ceremonies on campus at least, just do it.
