Last month, just before Spring Break, the LADC hosted a Kinetic Poetry presentation. The event was the result of a collaborative project between English professor Keetje Kuipers' creative writing 'Poetry Writing II' course and Graphic Design professor Courtney Windham's 'Type in Motion' course. Professor Kuipers' students submitted original pieces written earlier in the semester to Professor Windham's students who then interpreted the poems into typographic animation. The outcome was a unique and alluring show of both written and spoken word as well as visual art!

When the Board of Trustees met on June 21, 2013, they designated four large departments as schools, including one within the College of Architecture, Design, & Construction. The Department of Industrial and Graphic Design (DIGD) exceeded the university's criteria for school status, which were based on degrees offered, enrollment, faculty, student credit hours and prominence within their fields. DIGD will now be known as the School of Industrial and Graphic Design!

The reclassification as a school indicates the former departments' level of achievement with a suitable title, and this new identity will allow these schools to compete even more effectively with programs of similar size at peer institutions.

Congratulations on this recognition, School of Industrial and Graphic Design!

Fabric samples and images of furniture are currently displayed in the LADC (look on our entryway bulletin board and around the first floor).  Feedback is welcome! A notepad is available by the entrance if you'd like to write comments or recommendations.

You can also view our color choices for paint, wood stain (for staining shelf ends, study tables, and wooden chairs), and carpet.

We would love to hear what you think.

During July and August, you may notice changes as we install new carpet and paint upstairs. This first phase of the LADC's renovation is scheduled from July 9 to August 24 (but we hope to finish by August 16th).

The process will involve moving books onto temporary shelving located on the ground floor and in the CADC Gallery, before the work of carpet installation and painting is to be completed on the 2nd floor from July 16 to August 3. The assembly of temporary shelving is under way, and the shifting of books from upstairs began this week (see photos below).

We plan to have all of the books assembled in call number order on the temporary shelves (and the shelves marked with call number signs) by next week. Although the stacks will be marked, they might be difficult to navigate, so we will be happy to help you find anything you need. LADC staff and student employees will also be able to retrieve books on demand during the move.
