On April 4, student artists, writers, poets and brilliant creators celebrated the release of DIME: The Arts & Literary Journal of Donnelly College. DIME (pronounced dee-may, not like the coin) is Spanish for Tell Me. The inaugural edition features the work of students and includes essays, short stories, photography and drawings of talented DC students.

The Nuts and Bolts (and mouse clicks) of 21st century Building
On April 20th, five pre-engineering students enrolled in Computer Aided Drafting took their CAD designs from a computer screen straight to a real-life construction scene in the Quindaro neighborhood of Kansas City, KS. In the classroom, students worked with a home design utilized by Heartland Habitat for Humanity. Students explored elements of sustainability throughout the semester; then they rolled up their sleeves and pitched in to turn the plan into a brand-new house.
