thank you for the invitation. i feel like there is never much interaction between design students at the U, much less with design students at various schools throughout the Cities.
i hope this is in line with the kind of stuff you wanted to see on here, audry. i just finished reading "How to Be a Graphic Designer Without Losing Your Soul" earlier this week. granted, it's not that exciting of a read, but the author does have some pretty good things to say. there is a section (towards the beginning) about compiling and assembling your portfolio, as well as contacting and interviewing at firms. i'd recommend it to any soon-to-be graduate. it sells for around $20, but google books has the whole thing online if you just want to read chunks of it at a time.
