Clap, clap, clap
Congratulations on the most recent issue of Horizons, which focuses on the University of Cincinnati as a "just community" [May 2000]. I was very pleased to see UC identify itself this way and read more articles in this issue more quickly than usual.
I recognized many of the names of those profiled in "90 Years of African American Heritage at UC" as friends of my parents, who are also UC graduates, and will share this article with the director of the Center for Black Culture and Research here at West Virginia University, where I am the director of women's studies.
In fact, I thought the issue was so excellent that I have ordered extra copies to give to our executive officer for social justice at West Virginia University. I also will share a copy with the editor of our university magazine and hope that he may want to use this as a model.
Thanks for providing such an important window into the history of UC.

Congratulations on a great article on Women's Studies ["Women's Studies Satisfies Intellectual Hunger," May 2000]. The article was one of the best the magazine has ever done, in my view. (In fact, the whole issue was nicely put together.)
In the 1970s, of course, no one on the magazine staff would have any idea about doing a story on Women's Studies. We had to write our own stuff and submit it. So the magazine has grown, as well.

I just wanted to thank you for your very excellent article on Women's Studies, so well written and interesting. The article about the black alumni was awfully interesting, also.

I've just read through the article on Women's Studies -- bravo! You've caught some really important things about our program. Thank you.

We wish you well and must give you high praise for the materials that you have produced in the past. I thoroughly enjoy each and every issue. We read them from cover to cover. We are particularly fond of Debby Rieselman's articles.
