I’ll continue, today, with staff answers to the applicationesque question:
Take a photograph of a spot at Fletcher that is important to you. Describe the spot, and tell us why you chose it (200 words or less).
Liz tells us:
I chose to take a picture of the table outside Ginn Library as one of my favorite places at Fletcher. As with any New England town, Medford experiences its share of cold, snow, sleet, and ice in the winter months. Come spring, though, along with beautiful weather, budding trees and sunny skies, also comes the ability to eat lunch outside, which my fellow co-workers and I, along with Fletcher students, take advantage of. There’s nothing better than being able to take some time from a busy day to go outside and decompress a bit.
Jeff chooses to take a photo of photos in the Fletcher Perspectives Gallery.
The Perspectives Gallery is one of my favorite places to visit at Fletcher. This hallway truly embodies the spirit of the community. Students, faculty, and staff create photo journals of their time in various parts of the world while studying, working, or traveling for pleasure. When visiting the gallery I always learn something new and also reminisce about my own experiences. The same is true when speaking with current Fletcher students. Everyone I meet, through the admissions process or on campus, has inspiring stories to share. Fletcher is such a diverse place, and the Perspectives Gallery provides a glimpse into why the community is so special. Take a look at the Fletcher Perspectives website to see for yourself! Photographs from the exhibit can be purchased for $20, and all of the proceeds are donated to the UN Office of Children and Armed Conflict to assist with the rehabilitation of child soldiers.
