Subject: Take a piece of the Law School with you on Friday!

As you probably know, the moment Graduation Day comes to an end this Friday, the Classroom Wing portion on the Law School renovations will kick into high gear.

Part of this project includes replacing the chairs that you have sat in over the past three years. We have decided to offer one to any member of the Class of 2004 who pledges to make a gift of any amount to the alumni Law School Annual Fund over the next year. They may not be the most comfortable chairs ever made, but this is a wonderful opportunity to take a piece of the Law School with you.

All you will have to do is stop by the Classroom Wing during the Graduation Reception on Friday afternoon and pick out your chair. Unfortunately, due to the very tight construction schedule, you MUST take your chair with you that day. We cannot help with storage or shipping.

If you have any questions, please contact Tim Brennan in the Development Office at XXXXXXX@uchicago.edu or (773) 702-XXXX.

This sounds to me like the school is trying to subcontract its construction removal costs to its students without paying them. In any event, what a stupid fucking idea. Thanks to graduating student nrm for the tip.
