euges116 Posted April 22, 2010 Share Posted April 22, 2010 (edited) Okay, here's the thing. I'm a current grad student, btw, and know my profs pretty well, and they know me pretty well. So, I collect mugs with (official) university logos on them. Some people collect stamps and butterflies, I collect U-mugs. Obviously, there's no way I can visit every college/university in my lifetime, but the profs in my program typically travel for conferences quite a bit in the year. I'm wondering if you think it's appropriate for me to ask them to buy me a mug, and I'll pay them back? It's not like a postcard, so it's not that small that you can just slip in a bag. It is a mug, a bit bulky to wrap. But, I do intend on paying them back. But is this appropriate? I'm kinda 50/50 on this, so I thought I might here your thoughts. I guess it would depend on my relationship with the individual profs, huh? Oh, also, I don't intend to ask for every mug from every university. Just the more "famous" ones like Harvard, Stanford, Oxford, etc... Edited April 22, 2010 by euges720 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
