Photo Exhibit for Undergraduate Fieldwork

If you are interested, post here for some suggestions about how to go about this. We were envisioning a display in the 3rd floor lounge and we may be able to acquire some funding to print a poster, chosen through a competition of some sort. 

Tell us what you think!
