The big 2-5

What better way to celebrate a silver anniversary than hanging an 80-foot banner that shows your accomplishments through the years? That's exactly what the College of Design did last week. But getting the banner in place was no easy task. Students had to stand on a bar to counterbalance the device that raised the banner (left). Then, as the banner started to go up (bottom left), the end flipped over onto a lower balcony and had to be released (bottom middle). But in the end, the banner came to rest in its designated place in the College of Design atrium (bottom right). Check out another silver anniversary event.
