Class of 2020 Photo Mosaic

Student Development Programs organized a live photo mosaic wall for students. Students and staff texted photos and/or posted them on social media using #USISeniorWeek20 to create a mosaic effect on the Class of 2020 photo taken in The Quad.

Want a copy of the Class of 2020 Photo Mosaic? Download the photo or order prints.
