Telemarketing from the old University

May 2, 2012

I arrived home tonight to find a letter from my old University saying that one of their students is going to call me over the next few weeks to ‘learn more about your engagement with the University and update you on recent achievements, future plans and ways you can be involved’. They’re asking for contributions to their bursary fund to help students in financial hardship. I can however, opt out from receiving the phone call.

This is bold telemarketing for the University – the first time they’ve been so forward. I wonder if they’ll use marketing students?

I don’t like the presumption that I should have to do something to not receive a telemarketing call. While I like the idea of supporting the bursary fund, that might be for the future.
