Advising - OUMS student organization

As long as I have been working in the School of Visual Communication, I have been the faculty advisor for Ohio University Multimedia Society, a student organization which I started when I accepted my faculty appointment.

In 2011 the members of OUMS dreamed up and lauched Project Click.
In the fall of 2011 Project Click was a finalist in the Adobe Design Achievement Awards.
Every quarter this organization has been taking trips to visit multimedia firms around the country. In 2010-2011 we visited firms in New York, Columbus and Chicago.

Advising

Each academic year I advise between 30 and 40 undergraduate students and approx 4-6 graduate students on which courses to take. In addition I spend time helping these and other students find fulltime jobs, internships and freelance work. I write letters of recommendation to help complete graduate school, job, internship and study abroad applications.
