Dear Mr. Frontone:

The University recently completed the first new dormitory to be built on campus in forty years, the Max Palevsky Residential Commons. One of my tasks was to select and purchase all the furnishings. This new dorm houses 738, mostly freshman, students.

We have always tried to provide our residents with clean, comfortable dorm rooms. Of course with thousands of students to house, we can't afford to provide a new mattress every year for each student. We have tried plastic or vinyl mattresses, but alas, they don't breathe very well and they would split in less than one season. We also received complaints that they were hot and sticky. Cloth covered mattresses are the most comfortable, but again they will stain, and although still perfectly sound, they must be disposed of when stained.

We discovered MyBed mattresses. We bought a few as replacements and realized our mattress problems were solved. MyBed mattresses are perfect for Residence Hall use! All of the exterior and even some of the interior components are removable and cleanable! What an ingenious idea. Extra stock of mattresses can be kept to a minimum. A supply of extra components is all you need. This saves storage space, labor and money.

The MyBed mattress is also very comfortable, classy looking and inexpensive. By looking in one of our new dorm rooms, one would think we spent a small fortune on mattresses, but as it turns out they cost no more than any other cloth mattress.

We face many challenges in the area of Student Housing. Thank you MyBed for easing our burden.

Sincerely,

Terrence M. Nolan
Project Manager

John,

Just wanted to let you know that it's been almost 2 years now that we installed 740 MyBed mattresses in our new Max Palevsky Residential Commons. In the process of cleaning the buildings this summer, we noticed that the mattresses look like they were installed yesterday. We have not had to replace a single mattress yet. They still look brand new!

My experience has been that after two years probably ten percent would have to be replaced for one reason or another. The MyBed mattresses continue to provide us with quality and value.

Thanks again.

John,

Thanks for your follow-through and excellent product. We're excited about offering myBed on our campus and we will pass student reaction on to you in the future.

Just from the students who helped unload, the comments have been extremely positive. One recently married student even commented he had left dorm life too early. Our office of Student Personnel has been impressed with the quality and the ability to change-out parts of the mattress.

I've always been raised with the saying "you get what you pay for." MyBed proves that saying 100%. You can buy cheaper mattresses, we've got them on our campus also, but this mattress system is destined to keep our students happy and well-rested.

Again, thanks for your assistance and the mattresses. I trust we may be able to do additional business in the future.

Always my best,

Terry D. Waltersdorf

John,

Since we have installed the MyBed mattress in some of our residence areas, the request has been "can we get one also!" Our students love the comfort. When students walk into an empty room the the first time even the looks of the mattress says "quality" and "welcome home!"

A female student with severe back pain was helped by changing her mattress from our old type to the new MyBed mattress. She says, "I can sleep much more comfortably now and that can only help my academics."

Thanks for making a premium quality mattress for the institutional community. For a few dollars more these mattresses tell our students we care about their total campus experience.

Always my best,


Terry D. Waltersdorf

Dear Mr. Frontone:

Last summer we purchased MyBed mattresses for all of our replacement and new beds in residence halls and student apartments. We also purchased MyBed mattresses for our residence life staff.

The response has been exclusively positive! Students appreciate the extra thickness of the mattresses and the extra length. Staff members appreciate the ability to exchange mattress components as needed.

One of our resident directors used to have trouble sleeping in his bed and would often sleep on his couch instead. He recently told me he has slept great in his bed ever since we got him a MyBed mattress! It has been comfortable enough to keep him from sleeping on his couch at night, and now, he even rises earlier in the morning and feels well rested! He agrees they were a great purchase.

We are currently planning to equip a new residence hall. I will need to speak with you soon about ordering even more MyBed mattresses to be delivered next summer. Thanks for a great product!

Sincerely,

Randall E. Dodge, Ph.D.
Dean of Students
