Best Ideas

Dear Readers:

Some of our best ideas come from you. Because we are now publishing four Bulletins a year, one more issue than in the past, we need your suggestions more than ever.

This year, for our extra issue, we plan to publish an end-of-summer Bulletin (late September) that features alumnae with unusual occupations, volunteer activities, or personal interests. In the future, we hope to use this summer Bulletin to focus on a timely issue of interest to our readers.

What do you want to read about? What should we do more or less of? What issues, if any, should we cover? For variety, we’re occasionally using ink colors other than the standard Scripps green. Like it? Or not?

Just drop us a line. Nothing fancy: “Great job.” “The parakeet liked it.” “Read every word.” “Only read Class Notes.” “More features on (your major here).” “Fewer sentences that end with a preposition.” Something like that, or much more, if you prefer. We won’t print your comments unless you give us permission.

The easiest way to contact us is by e-mail to, but a postcard or quick note in the mail will work just fine, too. Now that you have faces to put with our names, we hope you’ll stay in touch. We look forward to hearing from you.

With best wishes for a wonderful summer,

Mary Shipp Bartlett
