Campus

Student-developed displays are installed in various academic buildings across campus. Students going to class encounter displays that relate to their course work, adding another dimension to the learning process. These displays also bring attention to the Museum, the Museum Studies program and the study of material culture.  Displays can be found in Anspach, Powers, and Brooks Halls. < View photos>
