Take Our Daughters and Sons To Work Day

Trinity Hodges inks an etching plate to run through a printing press as her mother, Traci Hodges of the John M. Olin School of Business Career Center, watches. Participants in the printing program, led by Tom Reed, master printer for Island Press, the collaborative print workshop at the Sam Fox School of Design @ Visual Arts, drew on PVC sheets, inked the plate and ran it through the printing press to make a print in Bixby Hall. The activity was part of the annual Take Our Daughters and Sons To Work Day April 26, which featured 18 different campus-wide programs offered for parents and their children. Sons and daughters attended the programs in the morning, then had lunch in The Gargoyle and were entertained by The Aristocrats, one of WUSTL’s a cappella singing groups. In the afternoon, the 113 sons and daughters shadowed their parents in the workplace.
