Production Furniture for the Contract Market

Students in the Production Furniture for the Contract Market class enjoyed reviews a week ago with members of our IAPD Advisory Board, OFS Brands, as well as Brian Graham and Bob Beck. See the write-up in the newest edition of OfficeInsights here (beginning on page 3) - an excellent article about the course, students, and IAPD in general! 

S.E.A. Earth Day

Students for Environmental Action (S.E.A.) is extending an invitation to IAPD students and faculty to participate in their annual Earth Day event. They will set up a booth with activities outside in Bosco Plaza along with many other organizations. This is a great opportunity to promote the awareness of the environmental needs of today. 

The event will be held Wednesday, April 22nd. If you are interested in participating, contact Lawrence Tan at lztan@ksu.edu ASAP.

Student Update

The second years began their desk organizer project last week. Each student is designing a way to organize what they use the most now and might use in the future. They will hopefully be used for the remaining time they have at KSU. 

What is your class engaged in? Email Mary at cosimano@ksu.edu to announce what your class is up to!
