Of my favorite faculty, I never felt patronized. They took us seriously and expected good work from us. If we didn't deliver, they let us know, and demanded the better work they knew we were capable of. They pushed us without being malicious, and earned our respect, on top of already being warm individuals once we got to know them.

Professors play What the Font?, a typography-based guessing game

What the Font?

Professors Clif Meador and Maurice Meilleur test their typographic knowledge in a game of "What the Font?," created by students Magnolia Hopkins and Savannah Selby in Typography III. Players in the game, modeled after "Guess Who?," try to guess the chosen typeface of their opponent in a series of yes or no questions.
