Then & Now: how campus has changed over the years

I was inspired to do a “Then & Now” photo series of campus after learning that Campus Walk was once a road in an Intro to Planning class I took last semester. I found pictures on the old road on the UMW Digital Archives page online and also an adorable picture of Dean Alvey. Having a class with the Dean this semester, I asked him if he would be interested in posing for a picture for my project. I have always loved “Before and After” themed things and I don’t know of a better way to capture the progress and development of a campus than through photography.
