A large degree of money-grubbing

I received a “begging letter” today, from the university where I studied for my degree. They’re after donations from ex-students to fund poorer students so they can attend the university and study.

Whilst I’d certainly agree that one’s financial circumstances shouldn’t restrict opportunities for education, I do also find it slightly galling that universities take so much money from students leaving them with massive debts and then pay some of their staff many times my income. Perhaps if they’re that concerned about the opportunities for poorer students they should look to their own finances first.
