PHOTO OPPORTUNITIES NEEDED: This spring the Office of University
Marketing and Public Relations received a great response in request
for suggestions of academic activities to photograph for use in
Admissions publications and other university marketing materials.
Many of those photos were used, so we're looking once again for a variety
of laboratory, field experience, traditional classroom, arts, sciences,
business and technology opportunities to photograph. We want to feature
students interacting with faculty, other students, children and employers.
Faculty willing to spare a few minutes to help us represent their academic
areas are asked to e-mail class times and a brief description of the
activity to: mary.reidy@uni.edu
