Fletcher Open House

On April 10th and 11th, we welcomed over 160 visitors to Fletcher for our annual Open House.  As not all admitted students were able to attend, we have provided some short, informal clips from various sessions from the two days.  Some of our favorites are marked with an asterisk*.
