BLS Student Portfolio
Keep copies of your major BLS assignments. You can keep them in your iSpartan drive as long as you are active at UNCG, but also keep them in at least one more location (e.g., your own Google drive, your own computer, or on a thumb drive). You will use them when you compile your Senior Portfolio for the BLS Program.
