  1. That's great! I thought they had already had the dedication ceremony and wondered why I couldn't find anything about the facility on the Full Sail website. Once again Havard comes through with the info!

  2. Was at Full Sail University on Sunday 10/10 and talked to Rob Catto and other gamers. Was checking out the campus because my son is thinking about attending the Game Development program. Can't be there on October 30. Didn't know that Dave Arneson was once a professor there.

    Thanks Dan! Greg Svenson deserves credit for pointing me in the right direction.
