SALISBURY, MD---Salisbury University’s Center for Extended and Lifelong Learning (CELL) invites community members to get to know the campus better through “Discover SU,” a series of tours highlighting the University’s offerings and services.
This falls tours begin Thursday, September 21, as guests learn about the SU Art Galleries (SUAG) Downtown and its new Smithsonian Institution traveling exhibit “The Way We Worked.” Participants will meet at the gallery, in the Plaza Gallery Building. SUAG Director Elizabeth Kauffman leads the tour.
Drawing from photographs at the National Archives and SU’s Edward H.
