College fundraising letter repeats 'blah'

BOSTON, Oct. 21 (UPI) -- Some former students at Boston's Framingham State College said they felt insulted by a recent fundraising letter that used the word "blah" 137 times.

University officials said the letter, which was signed by the president of the school's alumni association, was an attempt at humor aimed at younger graduates to raise money for the school's Legacy Fund, WCVB-TV, Boston, reported Tuesday.

"With the recent economic downturn and loan crisis, it has become even more important for Framingham State College to receive your support. Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah,

blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah," the letter said.

The college's advancement office apologized for any offense caused by the letter after some alumni complained that they found the note unprofessional and insulting.

However, school officials noted the letter yielded about $2,000 from graduates who were first-time donors to the school.
