Letter to the Editor

November 7, 2007

Dear Editor,

As the majority of our class is seniors, our days as students are running short and the 9-5 daily grind is knocking on our doors. Currently, we are often limited to part-time or summer jobs and short-term internships where we carry out less then desirable activities for the given corporation.

Fortunately for the students in Communication 698, we’ve been able to not only learn about successful communication practices to use while in the workplace, but we’ve been able to put these concepts into action. We’ve done this by working in conjunction with the United Way of the Greater Seacoast region to manage the campaign here on the UNH campus.

Our students have really stepped up and contributed large amounts of time and effort to spread the word of the campaign to our campus community, with a goal set to top last years amount of total contributions. Halfway through the campaign, we can already see how our efforts have come into play from the numbers released in last week’s campus journal..

We’ve even recently received the outstanding news that Barbara and Cyrus Sweet have challenged anyone out there who wants to give to the campaign. They’ve put forth a $250,000 grant that will match the first 100 new gifts of $1,000 and any prior donator that increases their donation by 10 percent. These numbers are amazingly generous and exciting for our class and the campaign.

Working towards such a rewarding goal proved to be a very motivating factor for the members of this course. When you’re not only working to achieve exemplary grades, but to improve the quality of life for so many people and families, as the United Way does every year, you really push yourself to achieve your very best.

-Communication 698
