Printer Room on the 2nd Floor

We are aware of the issues with the printers and realize how frustrating it is for you. We are working to try to provide some trouble shooting solutions. Please would you all make sure that you recycle paper you don’t need instead of leaving it on the counters in there. In general just keep the room clean and alert me if you run out of paper. Thank you.

Lost and Found

I have a black jacket, a floral umbrella and a pair of sunglasses in the office if you are missing any of those. Alex Carruth has lost a black thumb drive and remembers it being in the mac lab on the second floor. If you have it please let him know or bring it to me in the office. 

New BFA in Photography

Expect an email soon about the new BFA in Photography. Please forward this to siblings, high school art teachers or friends that might be interested in this program. If you would like us to contact them we will be happy to do that, too.
