Dear undergrad students,
A teacher at IIT/Perspectives, the school where Tony Parillo teaches,
is looking for a student to help his class with the Future City
competition. Is there any who might be interested?
If so, please contact Patty Cronin in the Dean of Science and Letters
Office, E1-110, or me.

> applications." Students develop a project plan, use SimCity software
