For my enterprise story, I chose to write about the University of Utah Alumni Association after becoming more involved over the course of the past semester. As I became more involved, I was exposed to a plethora of opportunities and resources for current students that I had no idea about, so I thought I’d share some of the things I’d found.
Since the Alumni Association is located right on campus and part of the University of Utah, it was very easy to find sources from the office. I feel like when people already work for the U, they feel the need to give back and help students further their education. As for finding alumni sources, I just asked friends if they knew anybody that could help me out, which turned out successful. I feel that these were the best sources for my story because they demonstrate each step of the transition from student to alumni.
After gathering information, I tried to put it in perspective to write a story that the audience would be interested in. As a current student, I felt as though other students would be most intere
sted in the AlumniFire program, since we all have the constant fear of finding a job looming over our heads.
While writing this story, I really saw how tight knit the University of Utah community is and how students and alumni are constantly willing to help each other out. It’s been really cool to be a part of something so much bigger than myself.
