Wise and worldly readers, what throwbacks have you seen redeem themselves by being surprisingly useful?
1: Parking is super cheap (compared to parking structures, at least) and highly space efficient.
2. Other support tends to be super cheap as well (a bike repair stand runs about $1k a pop, which is generally some findable change for campus facilities). Bike routes have a much smaller space impact than regular roads.
3. Being a bicycle RIDER is super cheap. I probably pay a few hundred dollars a year to ride, where as typical costs of car ownership are generally several thousand a year. For students that are trying to be frugal, it's some big savings.
4. Promoting active transportation is one of the best things you can do to promote the general health of your students and employees. This helps keep health costs down for your employees.
5. Something something environmentalism.
You just have to be careful that there aren't any FERPA protected items on that postcard.
Get any catalogs in the mail lately? We order on line, but ignore e-mail ads and promotions so catalogs still serve a purpose. Send them too frequently (Land's End, I'm talking to you) and they become more spam that goes straight to the recycle bin. Ditto for the one that arrives the week after an order. Time it right, and it will get noticed.
