Get ready to turn Anna Maria “Inside Out” In April, the campus of Anna Maria will be turned “Inside Out.” As part of a coordinated effort through Worcester Student Government Association, Anna Maria’s SGA is coordinating this event. As a participant school, the campus will, on an undisclosed date, display prominently 3-by-5-foot images of Anna Maria College community members at various outdoor and indoor locations on campus. The display will celebrate the theme of “Individuality within a Community.” Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to participate by having their photographs taken in the Campus Center during lunch next week, Monday, March 14 through Friday, March 18. Those images will then be enlarged for the campus-wide display in April. Individuals interested in being photographed are encouraged to bring along props that depict their hobbies, interests and personality to include in the photograph, i.e. a fishing pole, lacrosse stick, sketch pad, megaphone, etc. For more information on the Inside Out project, click here.
