Emailing majors/minors that are seniors

Currently we feed all students that have declared a particular major or minor into the appropriate Department site in Blackboard. This allows all faculty and AAs to quickly email everyone associated with the department, conduct surveys, provide a space for majors/minors to add information about their progress towards fulfilling the major, communicate with each other …
One other administrative function is to email seniors. There are many ways to do this each of which requires some front end work and maintenance of lists. However, we have a little work around that makes contacting majors/minors that are also seniors rather easy.
