…and Session 1 Ends

It is a “tradition,” it seems, that week three of the pre-collegiate program leaves little time time for reflection, and this year was no exception.  If you have been reading our intermitent posts, you’ll note that we have yet to publish anything on the last week of the program.  To  close out session one, I will post a large collection of pictures from a variety of week-three sites, and you’ll also find the final formal post on our visit to Richmond’s antebellum industrial zone.  We’ve enjoyed every minute and wish our students the best in their future endeavors.  We hope to see  you again.
