Senior Projects

Each student must complete a senior project in order to graduate. The Senior Projects collection is part of the Archives. The projects are cataloged in Thorncat and are identified with the call number Senior Projects. Senior projects are available for library access only and must be retrieved by library staff. A selection of digitized senior projects is available on the Internet Archive.
