Our Walls of Fame

This magazine article is part of Fall 2017 / Issue 90

We recently asked F&M alumni to tell us what they had hanging on their residence hall walls back in their college days . Their answers were entertaining, ranging from Broadway posters to old Abercrombie bags to random pieces of mail. It got us thinking: What are current F&M students hanging on their walls? Here’s a sample of what our photographer found. Photography by Deb Grove
