Such a pleasure to see many alumni and friends here for the Career Fair last week! Each year numerous people work to make this a valuable and effective event; thanks to everyone for your efforts in this regard. Our relationship with the professions is critical as we shape emerging professionals together.

Our most recent strategic planning workshop yielded exceptional discussion and forward momentum as we look toward the next several years in the college. To facilitate discussion, workgroups are formed around Mission and Values, People, Educational Programs, Research and Creative Activity, External Relations, and Internal Operations. Look for upcoming opportunities to be involved and contribute your input!

Welcome to a brave new semester. As a college we will face refreshed challenges in the form of new classes and studios. To aid in these efforts, Tau Sigma Delta is excited to announce the re-launch of the ASK Help Desk.

The ASK help desk exists to help students realize their designs. ASK has assembled a panel of tutors who have skills ranging from digital modeling to presentation ability. The new ASK Help Desk format will directly match a volunteer tutor to a student in need of help. Tutors and students will set up a time and place to meet that is convenient for both.
For more information about the ASK Help Desk and the subjects it covers, please see the attached poster. If you need help from the ASK help desk, please email your question to:
