“Thank you so much for your kind commentary. It is indeed inspiring to know that we can make such a difference in the lives of students at RU! I am thrilled that you are enjoyng our vegitatian station, Terra Ve. Good luck this semester and if in any way we can make things better, let me know.”

“I have again enjoyed Whim this semester. You guys do a great job and while I don’t agree with all you say, I do laugh and find your views and observations great. Keep up the good work. You make RU proud and reflect the best in creative thought. Look forward to your work next semester. I never miss an issue and I always look for and respect your feedback on campus life. Have a great break. You have earned it. Happy New Year and a great Holiday Season.”

David E. Hill
Asst. V.P. for University Services

“Hey, I’m one of those left behinds–the parent with the dull life, living vicariously through her daughter’s freshman adventures at RU. I love your magazine. I get the newsletter and it is also wonderful. But I especially like your new look–did I miss it earlier, or is it a new 11th season revamp? Anyway, keep up the great work, and let it be known that some of your greatest admirers are the ones at home, still figuring out how to pay next semesters tuition bill.”
