VOTE YES: At Rutgers, Targum meant everything to me


To the Editor:

The Daily Targum was my world at Rutgers. Targum trained me as a a reporter, writer and editor, but it also gave me so much more. It taught me what it meant to be an engaged member of a community, to think deeply, to care about something bigger than myself, to always learn from the mistakes of today and strive to do better tomorrow. Targum taught me that it was possible to make a real difference if I worked hard enough and as part of a team. The skills I learned there have served me well, first as a daily newspaper reporter after graduation and now as a historian. Targum is an essential part of the Rutgers community, its past and its present, and let's hope it continues to be far into the future.
