The Chicago trip is over, Career days is over, and we can all relax... for a bit. We're having a fresh new AIGA meeting next Thursday March 3rd at 6:00 p.m. in the Junior studio. We'll be thinking of new things to do for the rest of the semester, so come play!
Also, there is a Pittsburgh AIGA Happy Hour tomorrow from 6:00pm to 8:00pm in Bossa Nova, at 123 Seventh Street in the Cultural District). Go socialize, network (if you still have energy left over from the past two days), enjoy reduced drink specials and more!

Okay, this is gonna be a little bit of a long update, but it's got important stuff regarding the t-shirt contest and the Chicago trip.
The deadline for submitting your entry to the annual design t-shirt contest will be next Friday, January 21, at noon. All entries will be posted on our AIGA chapter website(I will give you the url when it is available) and voting will happen there so we don't have to have a long, drawn out, useless meeting.
Email your files to Tim or drop them off at the Design office.
