A couple of years ago, I got a notification from the FSU Alumni Association that I was eligible for membership in the Emeritus Society.
In recognition of my generous financial support of my alma mater? No way. FSU parking tickets were $5 when I was making 75 cents an hour as a student assistant in my freshman year in 1958. When I protested, I was told that the money went to scholarships, so I should cheerfully fork over more than six-and-a-half hours pay for overtime parking. Memories like that have an impact on lifetime giving.
