UFVA Day 1 Thoughts

Every single thing I heard today, particularly from industry professionals, was about how the most important things students need to know are never the functionary things, even when technical gigs. Group work. Collaboration. Lose the ego. Just try it. Aesthetic vocabulary. Sense of play.

It's easy to forget, when I get caught up in whirlwinds of people asking for particular things they want. Why don't we have a class just in Program X? We should own Equipment Y or Software Z!

Those are not the reasons to go to college.
