In 2013, I collaborated with noodle + scribble to produce a brochure for Gettysburg College, highlighting the college's emphasis on providing students with an education that will prepare them for an increasingly globalized future. An excerpt of the brochure copy is viewable below.
Do Great Work Here
Gettysburg's liberal arts curriculum gives you the chance to steep yourself in world literature, trace the histories of ancient civilizations, and immerse yourself in the arts. Explore the world's rich cultural diversity - and what makes us human.
- All Gettysburg students take 2 semesters of a language or more. We offer Ancient Greek, Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Latin, Portuguese, and Spanish. Other languages are available through study abroad and our well-equipped Language Resource Center.
- The Sunderman Conservatory at Gettysburg is the Hub for musical performance and music education on campus, offering a wealth of music opportunities for all students, regardless of major.
- Gettysburg hosts over 800 arts and cultural events on campus each year. Participate in global service projects, attend Film Society screenings, or explore Buddhism through Gettysburg Sangha.
- Gettysburg's Asian art collection is a unique repository of objects that reflects the remarkable breadth of aesthetic production.
