The Writing on the Wall Project

The Writing on the Wall Project will be on the Student Plaza April 4th - 8th. The Wall is a physical representation of the walls we build between us in a society of many different people. Everyone has experienced some type of hurt and discrimination in their life time. Each brick will be painted by someone in our campus community. Each brick will contain a personal experience or painful word that comes from the memories of the person next to you in class, the person next to you on the elevator or the person in front of you in line at the Tiger Den.   We will leave the wall up for a week allowing people to view the wall, have discussion and see response of our fellow Tigers. On Friday, April 8 we are asking a great many people attend the Closing Ceremony on the student plaza to tear down the wall together. We do not want these words and walls to stand between us for long so please help us to address the dividers and tear them down.

Watch this video for a better understanding of the wall.
