Student Work Adorns Renovated Lower Level

Student work was hand-picked for the walls of Murphy Hall's new space.

Once the lower-level of Murphy Hall was complete, faculty and staff members chose student work to adorn the walls. The images were chosen from a variety of student experiences in the past year. Several came from photojournalism class assignments. Others were published on news sites from assignments for the field-based practicum course, the Minnesota Daily and Radio K. The photos cover a variety of topics and should appeal to students who spend time in the library and lab spaces.
