Check out this amazing graduation cap art by one of our students

We love this graduation cap art crafted by TESC President Pooja Makhijani out of felt, pompoms and puffy paint! It brings together the Fallen Star, a sculpture set on the 7th floor of EBU I (Jacobs Hall), with the Pixar movie "Up." The Fallen Star, a small cottage perched at an angle on the top of the building, is meant to convey the feeling of disorientation that students experience when they first arrive to a new campus. In "Up," a retired widower ties up thousands of balloons to his home, also a small cottage, and takes off for a region of South America he had always wanted to visit with his wife. Adventures ensue, featuring a young Wilderness Explorer who accidentally gets pulled into the man's journey, several talking dogs and an endangered bird.

Makhijani's next adventure is more defined: she is heading out to medical school at Stanford. You can learn more about her here.
