Junior Project Poster Fair

The Junior Project Poster Fair will be on display upstairs in the Constance Lavino Bell Library throughout Family Weekend. Families are encouraged to browse the projects on display during free blocks. The Junior Project is designed to provide an opportunity for each student to pursue an in-depth study of an area of interest outside of the traditional classroom during the summer between sophomore and junior year.
