Those talented students in the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts: They’re spending debate weekend covering the action like only they know how.

Through drawing, photography and writing, Sam Fox School students are recording their own unique take on debate events around campus and sharing their work through the school’s Instagram account.

The team putting together the innovative “Debate Diary”: Michelle Kim, art director; editor Abbey Maxbauer; designer Patricia Witt; illustrators Kat Bourek, Madeleine Gibson, Susan Lee, Shannon Levin and Francesca Maida; and photographers Ria Han and Megan Magray.

Below is a sampling from Saturday, Oct. 8, and Sunday, Oct. 9. The entire project can be viewed here through the Sam Fox School’s Instagram account.
