Envisioning “Science at Colgate” on the Walls of Cooley

We want to capture and share images of “Science at Colgate” on the new walls of Cooley. In particular, we seek photographs of “Science at Colgate” taken by people at Colgate. Six photographs will be selected by community vote. These will be enlarged, framed, and mounted on the walls of the Cooley Science Library.

HOW CAN YOU PARTICIPATE?

  • Submit a photograph at http://bit.ly/1nAUOCY by 1PM Monday, February 29th.
  • Selected photographs will be enlarged to at least 8×10, or more. Use of a camera rather than a phone is recommended. You can borrow a camera from ITS in Case-Geyer.
  • During the first 2 weeks of March, the Colgate community will vote. The six images with the most votes will be selected for framing and display in Cooley.*
  • Details about voting will be made available immediately after the submission period.

    If you have questions, please contact the peeps at Cooley via sciref@colgate.edu.

    *Persons whose images are selected will need to grant intellectual property rights for the image to Colgate University.
