iChat Lecture

We are having an iChat lecture tomorrow at 6:00 pm in the Viscom Lab. We will be talking to Elizabeth Ebers, the creative director at Fleishman and Hillard in St.Louis. She actually attended Truman so it should be pretty cool to get her insight on the Viscom program. Bring questions for the Q&A time following her presentation.

Hope to see you there.
