Associate Dean Brad Hokanson (Graphic Design) has collected images from the Welcome Week yarn event in the Rapson Hall courtyard. More than 200 first-year College of Design students participated in the community- and creativity-building events on Thursday, September 2, 2010. At 2:30 p.m., students gathered in the courtyard for discussions about the academic experience that are "drawn" with yarn, a technique that balances the conversation visually. The students then fill the entire courtyard with yarn. About about 4 p.m., the students gathered in the Rapson Hall auditorium to create the sounds of rain and a thunderstorm using only their hands. "These activities help demonstrate to students the connections that a university experience provides, and, more importantly, that even an impossible task can be accomplished with some creativity and your peers," said Hokanson.
