The Department of Television, Photography, and Educational Technology hosted a lecture and opening reception for instructor Johnston Grindstaff's "Multi-Exposure Prints in Black and White Photographs" on November 6 in the department's new Photo Gallery. Grindstaff (above left) discusses his work with President I. King Jordan (center) and student Brian Morris. Grindstaff's photographic work, which incorporates multiple exposures to show emotion and movement, is on display until November 20.
The department will host an Open House featuring actress Phyllis Frelich, plus lectures and a hands-on demonstration of the latest technology in the field at 3 p.m. on Friday, November 20, in the Merrill Learning Center LN30.
One of the more creative entries in a campus pumpkin carving contest held last month was this pumpkin, to which a student added a uniquely "deaf" touch.
Students enrolled in "Business and Professional Communication," a course that is co-taught by faculty and staff in the Career Center and Communication Arts, received advice from a panel of deaf professionals who came to campus to relate their experiences on communication in the workplace.
