Our current issue

People often tell us that our campus projects a feeling of serenity. But if you look past those idyllic images, you will discover a vibrant campus community brimming with activity 24/7. On February 1, 2017, our communications team set out to capture the energy of our campus on a single day.

We invite you to enjoy this special issue of Spirit: A Day in the Life of Our Campus.
