North Dakota State offers over 300 different student run clubs and activities.
On the NDSU website, through the hundreds and hundreds of organizations, a few piqued my interest.
At the top of my list was the Write a Letter Club.
What’s it about? Bryce Heustis, treasurer; Drew Spooner, vice president and Connor Baker, secretary said it’s simple: Members of the club commune and write letters to anyone — friends, family or state legislature.
The three (along with club president Jake Oliversen, who is away at basic training) believe writing letters to be an ode to a simpler way of communication.
“Writing letters is such a lost art form,” Spooner said.
The mailbox, Heustis said, is something more dreaded than cherished.
“We live in a day and age where no mail is good mail,” Heustis chimed in.
They love the idea of sending something to parents or grandparents that can be posted on the fridge, like report cards to show off to neighbors and friends.
The club hopes to have a table set up in the Union where people can stop by and write a quick letter to a loved one. The club will then pay to have the letter mailed.
It is a great idea to show someone you care.
The Write a Letter Club will have their first meeting of the year at 5:30 p.m. Monday in the Student Activities office in the Union.
