The Pen is Mightier (at the Berkeley B-School)

Handwritten thank-you notes are apparently in vogue at the UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business, and not just for recruiters who hold a student’s fate in their hands.

Recently, the school set up tables and invited students, faculty and staff to pen personalized notes to Haas donors… Hundreds of Haas students and staff participated in the note-writing effort, with many sharing specifics on how donors’ money directly influenced their education or work… Some of the notes included stories about accomplishments that would not have been possible without funding, such as research projects. Others included drawings…


It’s not known how anxiously donors are awaiting these letters. Hopefully, they will arrive before Saturday delivery disappears.
