the summer presented their “Focus on First Year” projects in the Nott Memorial on Wednesday.

Students chosen to participate are first-years who expressed a particular interest in photography.

The second annual “Focus on First Year” is a program where students with an interest in photography were able to explore their transitions to Union, as well as meet other first-years with similar interests as they met once a week to discuss their photographs.

This program incorporates various different themes to which the students’ pictures relate. These themes include What I Left Behind, My First Days, Confidence/Anxiety, My Union and My Transition. Each helps students share about their own experience and learn about others.

Vincenza Masherone ’15 said that the final project took around two and a half months to complete. “I’m so glad I did “Focus on First Year” because I met so many new people, and it really helped me realize my own transition here,” she said.
