 We enlist the help of Alex to hold office hours in the library lobby to tell her peers about the resource
       
     
 After a presentation to the Alumni Board, a member handed us $50 in recognition of our efforts. This kept Switchboard running for a week. 
       
     
 We created a hotline where students could call or text us at any time about anything.

 The gentlemen at  Camden Print Works  printed our t-shirts. We didn't have any money so they used left over shirts from old jobs.

 On October 11, 2012 we launched the new Reed Switchboard. This was a really big deal after working for months across nine time zones.

 Students ambassadors held office hours in the library lobby every week and showed Switchboard to their peers.
       
     
  Switchboard supported  every single Reedie created Kickstarter campaign, including this one from alumnus Ethan Rafal.
       
     
 An oral history book about Reed's past was published. I thought it'd be a lot more interesting to hear about the present and future so  Alex Cherin '12  shared  his thoughts . 
       
     
 We invited alumni to sit in on office hours. Here's Darlene '01 with Martha '14 and Lucy '12.

 This one time we decided to  send flowers to students  on Valentine's day. This was the scene in the library lobby at 3 AM.
       
     
 Often doing what you love means going freelance. So we asked  Lucy Bellwood  to give a workshop to her peers.
