Last week was a week of finishing up. Many teams played their last games and all students attended their last classes on Saturday. And on Friday evening and Sunday afternoon, the seniors presented their final theses to the community. As always, as I walked around campus taking photos, I was impressed with the talent, intellectual curiosity, and poise of our students.
A couple last games before exams!
