A letter and a survey

We 're sending out our introductory letter to the alumni staffers we have on our mailing list. A .pdf copy of the letter is here. (Adobe Acrobat Reader is needed to view .pdf files. If you don't have it, it can be downloaded for free here.)

Included with the letter is a questionnaire, seeking the thoughts and suggestions of our fellow alumni staff members. This survey can be taken online by clicking here (this link is also at the right of this page). Please reply as soon as your time permits, either online or by mail. Your response will help shape this organization.

If you don't receive a letter in the coming couple weeks,and are a former Collegian staff member who would like to join the association, please e-mail us and let us know! You can also write us using the address found at the right of this page.

Thank you for your interest in the Collegian Alumni Association, and we hope you'll join the organization and try to attend our reunion in October to celebrate the newspaper's 150th anniversary!

In the storm

The winter 2006 issue of the Kenyon Alumni Bulletin has a feature on Kenyon students and alumni who experienced Hurricanes Katrina and Rita last year. Among those profiled is Renee Brandt Peck '75, an editor with the Times-Picayune of New Orleans and, when a student, an editor at the Collegian.

The story can be found here. Ms. Peck also wrote the issue's closing column, reflecting on her experiences. This can be found here.
