The Professional Practices class, under the instruction of Leslie Jensen-Inman in the Graphic Design program at University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, will be participating in CreateAthon onCampus. CreateAthon onCampus, which originated at Virginia Commonwealth University in 2008, is intended to give students project management experience, an opportunity for community outreach, and an understanding in non-profit communication. This 24-hour work-around-the-clock creative blitz, which encompasses the efforts of UTC students working alongside professional partners and community sponsors, will create work for Dalewood Middle School to improve their learning environment. Strategic projects–ranging from creating an online presence for student artwork to revamping interior spaces–will be the beginning of a developing partnership between the community and our schools. This will be the first year for UTC to participate in CreateAthon onCampus and will be an important part of the Professional Practices class in the future. CreateAthon onCampus will be held April 8-9, 2011.

To make finding us on campus at various times a whole lot easier, here is a link to an interactive map for UTC’s campus:  Map of Campus

    UTC Students, Mentors and Partners,
    How wonderful it is that so many of you from Chattanooga have banded together to help a middle school student body and faculty. I know how hard all of you have worked to put this Creatathon together and how hard you will work for 24 hours to pull it off. It is an event you will never forget.
    There are many of us watching from outside of Chattanooga who are very proud of you. Feel proud of yourselves-you have reached out a helping hand while making your working hand stronger.
    Best wishes,
    Alice In Wonderland
