Student Work

Every year, students in the REFUGES program participate in a variety of courses ranging from the sciences to the arts. During these courses, students work on course projects to solidify what they have learned and build their portfolios. These projects are the outcome of months of work and research and are archived here on the REFUGES Program website.
