The SBS Dean's Office invited all seniors to submit a photo of themselves with one sentence describing what made UMass special to them. Produced and edited by Taylor Gilmore '15 (communication/journalism), the resulting slide show was shown to the audience at the SBS Senior Celebration on May 10, 2014. It was dedicated to Meghan Beebe '14 (sociology) who died tragically in December 2013 following a hit-and-run accident near her home in Connecticut.
