Vineyards and Midterms in FLR

Our midterm week is much later than it would have been at Drexel, so we have been studying for our exams during week 6 and 7 of classes. This means going to a cafe and cranking out notes on our lectures and creating presentations to show our professors what we’ve learned. We had written tests ...

Fashion as Art
