College of Mass Communication and Media Arts Dean Dafna Lemish hosted the college's annual International Holiday Town Hall on December 2nd.  MCMA faculty and staff brought numerous light food and dessert fare as well as cultural holiday symbols from their various countries of origin to celebrate the College’s diversity.  The venue was well attended, providing a comfortable setting for socializing.  The highlight of the Town Hall was a visit by Provost Susan Ford and the recently appointed SIU Interim Chancellor Brad Colwell.  Interim Chancellor Colwell spoke about current issues facing the university but underscored the strengths of SIU and CMCMA in particular.  Additionally, an informal question and answer session was held by Interim Chancellor Colwell and Provost Ford.
