Seelio Online Portfolio
Students in the College of Communication and the Arts capture their class projects and extracurricular endeavors with Seelio, an online portfolio program. Seelio allows for a visual and narrative presentation of one's experience. Check out some of the inspiring portfolios of students in the Department of Art. Learn more about Seelio.
