Come to the reception and ask architecture student Dubem Aniebonam what it all means to exercise your gray matter!
On March 4th at noon, foundation studies will hold a reception for the completion of a Design/Build project at Boundary Hall. Ms. Aniebonam created a design in her 3D Design class last winter that was chosen to be fabricated at 15 feet tall. We are very proud of Ms. Aniebonam and encourage everyone to attend and support this outstanding opportunity.
