This project may be your last obstacle standing in the way of your winter break. Make sure you choose a photo that represents your project. Make it medium sized and centered. (Photo by: Your name/TU Student)

Make sure you give your project a good headline that uses keywords and makes the visitors to your blog want to know more. Your summary blurb should be two to three sentences that make me want to watch your multimedia and read your feature story. Your video should be EMBEDDED below your blurb. You should also link to your feature story that is on a separate page.

Welcome Back!
