Caroline Bert, a senior photography major, launched a photography club on campus this semester. Bert has been working with coordinators from the office of campus life to form the club. The process included getting students to join and forming an editorial board, as well as various paperwork to make the club official. The club has held two meetings.
The club is open to students of all years and majors, not just photography majors, and meets every other Wednesday during common hour in Pell Hall room 101. The club currently has 13 members comprised of mostly photography majors and a faculty advisor, Allison Rufrano, an adjunct professor of photography in the department of art.
Bert’s mission for the club is to “expand the community past the department, and provide new and different opportunities to students.” The club will be taking photos of each other, sharing ideas, working with different types of camera equipment and will have the chance to explore photography creatively outside the classroom setting. Students who do not have photography experience will have the opportunity to learn from others in the club.
