Celebrating intellectual and creative life at Drexel is a key part of the Libraries’ strategic plan and there is much to celebrate. Already the Libraries has instituted a ScholarSip event series and an annual Author Event to recognize the contributions faculty make to scholarship. Now, the Libraries add recognition of graduate students.
The Libraries invited sophomore graphic design students in the Antoinette Westphal College of Media Arts and Design’s Typography I classes, taught by assistant professors Shushi Yoshinaga and Julia Colton, to develop unique designs for Drexel University Libraries’ Library Learning Terrace.
During the fall 2011 term, students worked under tight deadlines to create typographical compositions. Chosen designs will be printed on fabric screens that are part of the Herman Miller furniture currently located at the Learning Terrace, including those on the large stationary hub.
Projects were on display at the Library Learning Terrace between November 28th and December 5th. During that period, members of the campus community were invited to provide feedback on the projects and help select which pieces will be chosen for installation.
Drexel’s two-day commencement begins today. In honor of all the graduates, the Archives presents a new online exhibition, The History of Drexel Commencement. Created by Andrew Beck, an iSchool student and Archives volunteer, the exhibition presents materials from the Archives’ collections that document the ceremony, speakers and locations of this rite of passage.
