ADVISING: April 9th

Summer and Fall advising
will be held at the Temple on
Friday, April 9th from 1-3pm


We will be advising at the Temple in room 347 this time as opposed to our normal location. So just come to Temple and get advised at the same time!

How important is it to get advised? If you do not get advised on this date, you may not know what to register for. If you don't know what to register for, the classes you need may get canceled before you register. The classes you need get canceled, you don't graduate on time. For that matter, if your fellow classmates don't get advised, there's a chance classes you need to graduate will get canceled because those same classmates failed to register on time. That means COME TO ADVISING AND DRAG YOUR CLASSMATES WITH YOU!

Simpons writer speaks this week!! March 25th 2010, 6:30pm

Joel Cohen, Emmy-winning writer for "The Simpsons," addresses the dichotomy of his role as both a "creative" and a "suit" in his speech: "The Business Tao of Homer: Lessons in Creativity and Innovation From The Simpsons." Armed with an M.B.A., Cohen gained success in the corporate world before his illogical career move into comedy writing with "Saturday Night Live" and "Suddenly Susan." He eventually began writing for "The Simpsons," noted by Time magazine as "the greatest TV show of the 20th century." Cohen brings a unique and hilarious perspective to the roles that innovation and creativity play in both writing and business, as he draws links between maintaining a hit show and running a successful company. The lecture is free and open to the public. For more information, e-mail Georgia Lee or call 404.253.3206.

Art History of Games Lecture tonight!

The Game Renaissance: Art History for Game Devs
“Art History for Game Devs” is the fun, informative art history class that you never had. John Sharp, an art historian and game designer, surveys the history of art and its production, use and status. In the process, Sharp touches on the invention of "Art," the role of technology in its creation, and the impact of industrialization and mechanization on its current state. "Art History for Game Devs" also looks at the strong parallels between the birth of "Art” during the Renaissance and the rise of computer and video games.
Wednesday, March 3 at 8 pm
