I was a regular contributor to the college's quarterly magazine for seven years. My writing ranged from one-page profiles of students, faculty, alumni and donors, to multi-page, in-depth features on curriculum changes, programs and people.
Demonstrate the excellence of faculty, students, administrators and alumni to the alumni and donor community.
My approach was always to tell the college's story through the stories of people.
Two comments from people I interviewed and wrote about really stand out for me. One was from a professor who admitted that she was skeptical about doing the article. She'd been burned by some past experiences with writers. After the article came out, she wrote to thank me—not only for getting the facts right, but also for really getting to the core of the story. The other comment was from the new dean, on whom I'd done a major profile introducing him to the community. He said that my interview with him actually helped him understand and clarify some thoughts he'd not yet articulated.
