Identity Tree - January/February 2011

What’s in a fingerprint?  What is “identity”?  What makes you you?

Our community "identity" tree is being created by visitors who add their fingerprints along with their “cell names”: the first two initials of their first name along with the first two initials of their last name.  Located on the wall in the main hallway, 1st floor of Davidson Library.
