I realize that the state is having budget problems, and that the university is facing pretty hefty budget cuts. I do, however have a couple of issues.
First, I’d really like to get some indication of whether I’m going to get summer financial aid. I applied on the first day and was informed that notification would go out within two weeks. We are now at a month later, registriation begins Monday AND I HAVE NO FUCKING IDEA WHETHER I HAVE ANY FUNDING FOR THE SUMMER. This makes the decision on registering for classes difficult. Yes, I have contacted the financial aid office. They simply tell me that they are going out ‘soon’. Gee, thanks.
I’d also like to get my aid letter for next academic year. My FAFSA was submitted in January. But I’ll give you until April for that one ok?
Now, here’s the kicker. Did you have to sell my name to mailing lists? I know you did it - I don’t give my association with you to any organization that I request mail for. That means that the companies now sending me catalogs addressed to:
University of Tennessee
can only have gotten my name from some department there at the university. Thanks. Did you sell my name to Capital One too? I think they got it from somewhere else, but I certainly enjoy the five credit card offers I get a week from them.
Yes, the university president has declared a “no whine zone”. Yippee. You’d save a little money if you’d turn down the heat in the HSS building. Really. It’s 90 degrees in there and has been for ages.
And to the Kotex company:
The velcro wings were a nice idea. I see why someone thought of it. But they suck. First, no matter how I try to keep them out of the way, they fall back down and stick to the adhesive stip on the pad. This terrible error in your product design should be corrected immediately.
