Students Crossing Boundaries displayed a cardboard checkpoint reprepresenting the Israeli-Palestinian and United States-Mexican Borders in the Shapiro Campus Center ballroom.

The checkpoint was 20 feet wide and seven feet tall and was covered with physical artifacts, such as maps, photographs and stories, from the ten Brandeis Students who spent their summers along the two boarders.

At the event, the ten participants also held a question-and-answer session about their summers, and food from the two regions (pita and hummus and Mexican food) was served as well.
