Milton Glaser for the AIGA

Hey guys. It’s an election year. And you have to vote.

If your primary residence is here in Lubbock, then it’s super easy: Find your polling place, go there on election day, and cast your vote. You can even vote early if you follow these guidelines.

If you are living on campus, and are registered to vote in another county, follow these instructions to cast your vote (or these). But they must receive your application no earlier than 60 days before election day. The Presidential Election is Tuesday, November 8th. Sixty days before that is SEPTEMBER 9th.

The last Last Day to Apply for Ballot by Mail (Received, not Postmarked) is Friday, October 28.

I will happily assist you if you need help. Just ask!

The Phaser Is Back…


We have re-installed the Xerox Phaser 7800GX Color Laser printer (lab_color_laser) in the Print Lab.  This printer has had repairs done and we have created a color profile for it that more closely approximates true colors.

You MUST use the appropriate color profile when printing projects to this laser printer. Although you may print to it without specifying the color profile, you cannot be assured that the colors will come out as you expect.  As there are always differences between Brands and Models of printers such as the temporary printer, Xerox Phaser 7100 (vrc_color_laser), the resulting printed projects may have color differences. To help resolve those differences the temporary printer (vrc_color_laser) will remain available till the end of the semester so that any projects that were started using it may be completed on it. NO COLOR PROFILE NEEDS TO BE USED ON THIS TEMPORARY PRINTER.

Any new projects need to be directed to the permanent printer, Xerox Phaser 7800GX Color Laser printer (lab_color_laser).  The appropriate color profile for the Xerox Phaser 7800GX Color Laser printer (lab_color_laser) is ‘Phaser 7800GX_optimized’. This profile has been installed on all the computers in the Print Lab (AH 204 and AH 205).  All Students assistants can help students to locate this profile.
