A year in photos

Mia Alva, Editor in Chief

The University Times compiled photos that show events, student issues, and changes on campus throughout the year 2022. We take a step back to reflect on how things have changed over the semester and what accomplishments we have celebrated. Although we can’t fit all the photos of the semester on this page, these are the ones that stood out to us the most.
