I lifted the phone handset in my office, dialed the number for the NWU registrar's office, and got one of those recordings with choices, telling me to press one if I wanted this option, two if I wanted another option, and so forth. Once the message was over, it looped through again, escape proof. Press a number or wait endlessly.
There's one problem. My NWU supplied office phone, which works perfectly, is a dial phone, so I had no buttons to push.
