Be inspired by the She Roars arts showcases… and then let the world know how you roar. In the CoLab, you can get creative and take photos with your friends, make a quick GIF for social media, send a postcard to someone who helped you roar, and help create a fierce message wall. You can also watch video series by alumnae: “Protect Your Water” by  Katie Carpenter ’79 and “It’s Freezing Out There,” by Pepper Binkley ’01.
