This one is a ways off, but well-worth marking down: the 2011 First-Year Experience Conference, sponsored by the Center for the First-Year Experience, Friday, November 11, 2011 at the Pyle Center.

I had the opportunity to teach radio production to first-year students in an innovative First-Year Interest Group (FIG) program last fall. It was a personally enriching experience and we all (instructors and students) alike got a lot out of the course. To read more about my department’s participation in the FIG program, click here.
