ADVICE PAGE:
        Concentrate on relationships between work world and design project.
        Emphasis on communication skills

THINGS TO THINK ABOUT:
        Do our personal methods of communication illicit a 
        good or bad response.  Do your groups see you as a
        dominant advisor, or someone that they can feel free to talk to?

INTERNET SURVEY
        Kristin passed out a 5 page survey on advertising on the Internet
        as a test sample of the survey questions.
