The Orange Cord: The Page for Student Media Alumni
Starting in 2017, students involved in RMSMC graduate with an Orange Cord to distinguish themselves. The “Orange Cord” is the home of all alumni and supporters of Rocky Mountain Student Media.
Congratulations to the Rocky Mountain Student Media Class of 2020!
What We Do
The Orange Cord Board is made up of passionate Alumni and current RMSMC students looking to contribute to the education, guidance, and success of our current student and the RMSMC organization. We send out monthly newsletters and hold events for alumni and students.
“I’m very grateful for my experience as the corporate webmaster. While I did many things to prepare for [my] job at Amazon, the opportunity to work in a technical position at a professional media company as an undergraduate was truly unique and extremely valuable for my future career. I’m ecstatic to be starting my post-graduation career at my dream job, but I’ll never forget the great times I had with Rocky Mountain Student Media. Thank you!”
Corporate Webmaster, RMSM Class of 2020
Contribute To Our Work in Student Media
Donations help us continue our work for student media and maintain communications with alumni. We purchased eTapestry from Blackbaud to use as our student media alumni database. We use this system to keep track of contributions, alumni contact information, and send out our newsletter and event details. We already have over 4000 names imported into our system! While eTapestry is a great resource for us to complete our work, it costs us $2,400 a year for unlimited training and licenses. We would greatly appreciate your contribution to help us continue our work for student media and alumni!
For a recent persuasive article on why student newsrooms are worthy of donations and the investment of student fees, please read this article from Inside Higher Ed website.
All Donations are tax-deductable and controlled by the Orange Cord.
