Submissions Needed for Exhibit Showcasing "The Things They Carried"

In support of the Big Read Greater Wilmington efforts around the book "The Things They Carried" by Tim O'Brien, the UNCW Office of the Dean of Students is putting together an exhibit of items that students, faculty and staff carried with them while they were deployed.

The photo exhibit will be hung in Randall Library from Nov. 11 – Jan. 16 and then transferred to the military lounge in the Fisher Student Center. If you are a faculty or staff member who would like to participate, please contact Amy Hector at by Oct. 1 to arrange to be photographed along with the items you carried. Participants will also be asked to write a small blurb about the significance of the items.
