Two College of Design students received Metropolitan Design Center (MDC) scholarships for European travel this summer to work on self-directed research projects. Woody Hanson's research project is entitled "Building a Bi-Communal Bridge: Nicosia, Cyprus" while Austin Lukes researched "Lightrail Public Transportation in Ireland, the Netherlands, and France." The scholarships are sponsored by the MDC with the conviction that exposure to other cultures is essential for reflecting on our own. Hanson and Lukes will present the results of their research on Tuesday, November 3, 2009, 6 p.m., followed by a reception in 225 Rapson Hall. The event is free and open to the public.
