#Fridayinthefield The weekly ecology field class takes students to a wide range of environments for a closer look at site specific plant and animal communities. From highly designed stormwater systems in downtown Hartford, CT to wildlife tracking on frozen beaver ponds in Heath, MA, every place offers a valuable lesson if you look with the right eyes. Conway shares pictures of recent and past fields trips, and we’d love to see where you are learning now too. It doesn’t have to be a Friday to post a #Fridayinthefield memory or photo from a recent field excursion!

#Fridayhumanities  Whether you work at a regional planning scale or design suburban residential sites, taking the time to step back and take in the ethical debates in design and planning fields is important. From time to time Conway shares the topic for the week’s humanities discussion here, and you can use the hashtag to mark an article you thought was particularly relevant to design thinking – any day of the week.

#Conwayinthenews If you see a mention of the school or a student project, share it and tag it! We might have missed it.

#Campusview We are lucky to have a magnificent view of Mt. Tom from the kitchen at the Mill180 studios (above), and woods with all kinds of wildlife from the windows of the Hill campus in Conway, MA. When you stumble across old pictures from your campus days, give them a tag – and maybe a #TBT as well.
