    Today is the day for thousands of students graduating never having seen a UL sporting event and will never give a dime back to the U.

    That's why on your senior year, your tuition should include a graduation fee of $250

    -Cap and Gown
    -Diploma
    -RCAF membership at min level

    Think you would be surprised at how many actually do give back. It just might not be as visible as a financial donation to athletics. I know several recent graduates who have participated on committees and boards to give back in appreciation

    Why not grant them a membership in RCAF for one year at the lowest level. This would expose them to it and what it does. The alumni association does this with the hope that after one year they will join on their own and continue involvement

    Yeah....blend it in with a "one time graduation fee"

    They'll get all the cool stuff in the mail and feel a part of this
    -License Plates
    -RCAF membership card
    -Decals
    -Priority points memo

    Then they'll be more likely to give again....Nothing is for free
