Fall 2015 Capstone Celebration

EMAC Capstone Blog Post

Please join us on Thursday, December 3 at 7:00 pm in the ATC Lobby for our Fall 2015 Capstone Celebration! We are always excited about this event, but it carries particular significance this semester. These are the first EMAC graduates from the new School of Arts, Technology, and Emerging Communication, and this is the first time that we have been able to host the event in our ATC home.

At the event, students will share their semester long projects. Graduate students and select undergraduate students will make formal presentations of their projects, then we will have a showcase where all students will show their work more informally. During the showcase, the audience will have the opportunity to visit with the capstone students and interact with their projects.

You may preview the projects using the following links, but we hope to see you at the Capstone Celebration to let our students impress you with their projects.
