No Place Like Home

What is it?
During the Fall 2022 semester, students enrolled in Museum Studies 2300: Museum Education discussed the idea of home in anticipation of the Schingoethe Center’s upcoming exhibition No Place Like Home. Students brought in photographs and objects that represented their interpretation of home and shared stories and memories about them.

The act of sharing what home meant to each individual was a joyful experience that fostered a strong connection among everyone in the class. In response, the students decided to extend this opportunity across campus.


Want to Share What Home Means to You?

To participate, send a photo and short explanation of what home means to you to! We also encourage submitting physical copies of Polaroids at the museum’s front desk. To borrow the museum’s Polaroid camera, send an email to to set up a time.
