Several students showing work in the 100th Annual Student Exhibition commented on participating in the exhibit:

“It gave me a lot more confidence in my work and knowing I’m not the only one who appreciates it. Normally I would just shoot it and have it around my house. It gave me more confidence to go photograph other things.” - Sydney Vaughn, senior European studies major

“It’s a great experience to know the process of what goes in a show and what it takes, really. It’s a competition. It’s always going to be a competition. So it pushes your limits as an artist to really give it your best. You want to show your best work to your community. You don’t want to show something you’re not proud of.” - Courtney Creedon, recent studio art graduate
