The new library is almost here

For my powerpoint slideshow, I continued with the same topic as my Issue Story Number 1, which was about the construction of the new Penrose Library winding down.

The University of Denver makes recycling easy

The University of Denver offers many recycling centers around campus that allow for easy student access. I wanted my photos to reflect the efforts that the University is currently making.

Returning students learn to adjust post-abroad

In covering the topic of student’s re-adjustment to home and campus post-abroad, I wanted my photos to effectively show some of the aspects of campus that had changed while students were abroad. I also wanted to capture some of the ways that students learn to preserve their memories from abroad with things like their souvenirs, mementos and room décor. I also tried to illustrate the joy students feel when reuniting with their friends as well as the stress students endure from trying to juggle so many changes at once. I also gaves examples of ways students can help de-stress themselves and ease back into the normal rythem. Finally, I also wanted to point students in the right direction of where they can look to find support upon returning and get involved with sharing their experiences from abroad.
