Alums on Campus

The 2014-2015 academic year brought a wonderful influx of alumni to campus.  These visits have included a large number of drop-in visits by recent graduates, guest presentations in classes, and even long-term teaching stints in the humanities and in Studio Blocks.  We also enjoyed Skype and in person participation in our Honor Code Anniversary celebration by alums.

The photographs below document some of these contributions.
