I'm sorry I'm a little late on responding to you about what we would like for you to speak about. We are very interested in that Facebook clean-up site that Lyle told us you knew a lot about. We would like for you to hit on some things about how to keep any social network clean since most everybody has access to it, and how to get connected with each other and out professors while in college. We're in the Hearin Leadership Program, so we should all try to network with one another, because we are supposed to be the leaders on campus and when we leave, and we need to try to network with professionals on campus and in the community for recommendation letters, etc. So, some tips and tools for that. If you have any more questions, just let me know!
