I don’t open my NYU alumni mail because it’s never anything interesting. Actually, it’s more like, I don’t receive NYU alumni mail. The last address they had was my home address in Massachusetts, but since that house has been sold and no one in my family lives there anymore I’m free of mail nagging for donations. I used to have a friend who worked around the IT department of NYU who told me that if I wanted they could make it so that I don’t receive anymore NYU mail. I said that maybe to be cautious I shouldn’t do it. To which he sarcastically replied “Yeah, ’cause I’m sure one day they’re going to be sending you a big fat check in the mail that you wouldn’t want to miss.” I couldn’t argue, but I didn’t have him change my info.
