This Week: Annual Poster Sessions Explore Something for Everyone

Thank you for visiting Daybook Davidson. This blog post, along with the rest of the Daybook Davidson site, has been archived and no new stories are being added to the site. Please consider visiting the online version of the Davidson Journal to find similar stories about Davidson College, alumni, and members of the campus community.

Poster fairs at Davidson are hard to write about, because every single project, every single poster, every single student is worth a whole story alone. I’ll be doing my best to report on some of the current fin de semestre offerings here, elsewhere on the Davidson site, and in the Davidson Journal. But far better that you, Constant Reader, attend a poster session yourself! I guarantee you will be astounded and/or delighed at some point in the experience, and the students themselves will be standing right there to do some ’splanin’, which is usually necessary in my case, then I feel all smart. Come on down!
