“One of my favorite things I look forward to on campus every spring is the arrival of the ducklings. My husband and I take walks up to campus nearly every day in the spring and love checking up on our fuzzy friends and making sure they’re alright, and we take this job very seriously—just a couple weeks ago we scared away some crows who were tormenting a mother duck and her dozens of ducklings at the north duck pond. We are expecting our medals in the mail any day now. I like this picture because it captures the movement of these little guys and their excitement in learning the ropes of duckhood from their moms.“
Honorable Mention – David Kaiser, Counseling and Career Center
There never was a bigger duckpile on campus.
