School of Communications happenings

The academic renewal spirit continues in the School of C!
Over the next several months, students will experience upgrades in the technology available throughout the School.  A new lab fee is being used for technology enhancements such as software for ePortfolios, new computers, software upgrades, white boards and projectors for classrooms, and a new monitor screen in the entryway to the CB Powell Building. These improvements support the School’s renewal and reorganization laying a foundation for the future success of our students.
