An E-mail to the Team Before the Break: Holidaze Brain Food

Here is a recent email to the ballers that are @wluLex (Twitter)–Washington and Lee University’s student social media creators, curators and distributors.


When you get a chance, here’s some grade-A thought fuel. GREAT investment of small amounts of time over the next month. Pick a handful to watch and we’ll talk about some of the greatest hits at our next meeting—if you had to pick just one for everyone to watch, which one would it be? Please feel free to share others!
