For longtime donor Jane Swicegood, “the act of giving ... has been more fulfilling than I could have imagined.”
Check out her first-person essay titled "Why I support the J-school" in this fall's Cursor magazine, which should reach the mailboxes of nearly 4,000 alums this week.
“The School of Journalism emphasizes and requires that students train in what I consider basic traits of character: integrity, ethics, respect, accuracy, diligence, creative thinking, curiosity and
determination,” Swicegood said.
Please join her in making a difference in a student journalist's life with a year-end donation to help fund high-tech equipment, investigative reporting projects and travel, and hands-on publication experience.
