This Ferris wheel illustrates the journey that takes students from jeans to graduation robes.

The graphic, developed during a session at Evergreen College’s National Summer Institute on Learning Communities, was conceived and executed in under two hours on a tablet PC. In retrospect, I should have gone with a roller coaster!!

Image of a Ferris wheel. Wheel spokes are labeled with different groups that make up a school, such as "Faculty" and "Advising." A colored triangle (Maslow's hierarchy, unlabeled) decorates the center of the wheel. Students in jeans await their turn, students in graduation robes holding balloons finish their turn.
