Dear Friends and Colleagues:
I am a graduate student in Communication at North Dakota State University (NDSU). I am conducting a research project to examine the effects of forensics participation on people’s lives. I hope that with this research I will learn more about why people compete, how forensics affects their lives, and how students use the skills they developed in forensics.
I am seeking individuals who are willing to talk about their experiences as forensics participants. Individuals should have competed in forensics for at least one year, and be at least ten years removed from competition. Additionally, I am seeking individuals who are not currently coaches or assistants in a forensics program. I want to interview people about their experiences in forensics, and discuss the perceived effects of their competition.
So, please forward my contact information to any forensics alumni who have been out of the activity for at least ten years. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
