End of Semester Recap – Fall 2011

Wait… Is it Christmas already? That’s the kind of semester it’s been: Fast-paced and packed with classes and projects. In addition to taking on an extra-full teaching load, I finished some pretty large personal projects and DSU Live was in full swing with live events. Here’s a rundown of what kept me busy during the past several months:

School Related:

Student Projects:
