While there, the group visited several print-related attractions, including the Library of Congress, where they saw the Gutenberg Bible and a printers-occupation carving, and the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, where currency is printed. They also visited the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, World War II Memorial, Korean War Veterans Memorial, Lincoln Memorial and the Smithsonian Institution. At each of the sites, the group discovered or discussed various ways printing is used. Students who made the trip were Stacey R. Rupp, Eric J. Ryder, Alison R. Beitz, Taylor C. Dodson, Holly L. Worth, Rebecca R. Miller and Danielle N. Carr. The students are pursuing degrees in graphic communications technology and graphic communications management.Photos by Tom Tyberg, assistant professor of graphic communications
