In the spring issue of The Bridge, we invited readers to participate in the second annual Summer Reading Contest by visiting The Bridge Online. While entering, readers were invited to send comments, questions, and suggestions for The Bridge. And respond they did! Readers sent us feedback and made lots of helpful suggestions. Below you can read a sample of their thoughts.
And remember — keep those responses coming!
“I love your publication! Thank you for all your work!”
"The Bridge is an excellent way for me to keep abreast of events and accomplishments at Messiah. Thanks for doing such a great job!"
"I really enjoy The Bridge—I think the layout/design elements are particularly strong. I'm impressed."
“I am continually impressed with the quality of this magazine.”
"The web portion of The Bridge is great!"
"I appreciate the additional 'web-exclusive' content."
"My favorite part of the hard copy is class notes—I love reading what everyone is up to! "
"The Bridge always does a good job at balancing the two facets of informing me about what is going on with Messiah today and updating what fellow graduates are doing."
A number of The Bridge readers who responded to our Summer Reading Contest were relatives of recent Messiah graduates.
One reader, the grandmother of a recent Messiah grad, looks forward "to reading every issue of The Bridge." She is amazed at the growth of Messiah over the last number of years and hopes for continued success for the College and especially its students.
— the aunt of a Messiah graduate
— thinks The Bridge "is a great magazine!" She particularly appreciated the Collective Wisdom feature and loves to read about the news at Messiah.
A number of readers responded to The Bridge with their own story ideas.
One alumnus suggested a story that explores the current connection between the Brethren in Christ Church (the founding denomination of the College) and the College. As a member of a Brethren in Christ church, he thought it would be "interesting to think about where Messiah began . . . and what [the Church-College] relations are like now."
An alumna recommended reuniting students from the START program
— an organization for "at-risk" students entering college
— and seeing where they are now. She stated that many had gone on to do great things.
— a friend of the College
— thought that a story on "must-do" events at Messiah College would prove interesting for Bridge readers.
