Domers make their mark in the world and on the study carrels in Hesburgh Library. Self-expression is encouraged on campus, as are coping mechanisms to relieve stress and academic anxiety. Considered a healthy avenue toward alleviating isolation, the graffiti also reinforce solidarity within a cohort and are deemed by many — but not all — to be more entertainment than vandalism. These manifestations of ‘Kilroy Was Here’ scribbling, highlighted in our new winter issue, were captured by senior University photographer Matt Cashore ’94.
