Adobe Creative Cloud is not just merely aesthetic; it's epistemological.

Adobe Creative Cloud is not just surface, it's substance.

1) First-year success and retention

a manifold to the undergraduate curriculum

2) Success across the curriculum and time-to-degree

3) Success on the job market

producing work that demonstrates capabilities

4) Success as life-long learners

"I thought of you because I am now in charge of my division's educational blog; I just utilized some HTML code that you taught me during my freshman year [2000]! When I reflect back on how I have used the skills you taught in that class, I am amazed by what a positive impact you've had on my life. By using multimedia, you helped me understand the importance of strong communication skills as well as given me unique skills [that others in my profession do not have]."
