    We’ve just posted an environmental planning internship for the City of Cambridge on the Tufts website. Could it also be posted here? We often hire Tufts students.

  2. Dear Tufts Office of Sustainability,

    My name is Darya Nicol and I am one of the authors of The Green Dandelion blog. The Green Dandelion is a sustainability blog run by the University of Rochester.

    I am writing to you today because I found your site while looking for sustainability blogs and was very impressed by your articles. The Green Dandelion is looking to collaborate with other colleges and universities to help advertise one another’s’ blogs through mutual posts. We would post articles from your blog on our site provided you do the same.

    Would you be willing to consider featuring an article written by The Green Dandelion as a guest post? I would like to recommend the following article as one that would be relevant to your blog


    We would also be willing to share other articles on our blog for your use, providing the author and source is sited.

    I believe both of our websites could benefit from a guest post and would be honored to have one of our articles featured on (blog name). If you are interested, please let me know. I appreciate your time and consideration and I look forward to hearing back from you. Have an excellent day!
