Mid-Term Conference

Questions for Dr. Wharton:

  1. I want to make some emergency procedure signage for Our House, but I don’t want to just use a sample floor plan or map. Is there software or an application that I could use to create the map/floor plan?
  2. If i have fallen behind on extra credit work recently, can I still make it up by the end of the semester?
  3. In terms of my personal site, what is the best way to make it look more like a professional profile and not a journal?
