That’s a Wrap! Love Data Week 2024

By Nicole Daly

We are once again wrapping up an amazing week of data related events at Falvey Library. There was a lot planned out for Love Data Week this year, including the new Falvey Data Visualization Competition. This year we had submissions from across the colleges and we were able to celebrate and recognize four marvelous students in their work with data visualization. Below we have linked to each of their award-winning projects.
