Dennis Fox is a Graphic Design major with a minor in photography from Plymouth, Massachusetts. Some of Dennis’s favorite college memories include photographing commencement for the University’s PhotoGraphics Department, working on the Graphic Design Club E-Board, and being a designer for the revival of CVPA’s ArtMouth publication. He was also fortunate enough to work as a graphic design intern for the marketing department of the clothing company DXL Big + Tall. Dennis is often motivated by socially charged issues and takes great interest in creating design for change. Today he is working towards landing his first job as an inhouse graphic designer.
Throughout my time at UMass Dartmouth I was fortunate to work closely with the student body as a resident assistant. This job allowed me to work with people from all walks of life, enriching my college experience exponentially. As my time on campus continued, I began to see more of the shortcomings of the University. I found it hard not to be discouraged hearing the stories that some of my peers have endured and was even more discouraged when realizing how little people acknowledge these issues or are even aware of them. This is what lead me to study systemic oppression at the University, working to highlight these narratives, to learn and grow from them and to demand better of our administration.
