“Our New Chapter” on Display October 3 – October 8
“Our New Chapter,” an exhibition by Will Chapman (COM ’26), in partnership with Student Wellbeing, will be on display at BU’s Fitness and Recreation Center, October 3-October 8, with a private gallery opening October 2.
“Our New Chapter” is a photographic and written series that investigates the first semester of college. Documented during the first year of BU’S Class of 2026, this project offers a snapshot into the lives of twenty-six students as they embark on the journey of beginning anew.
Will Chapman is a photographer specializing in portraiture and events. As a student in BU’s Class of 2026, William created “Our New Chapter” to connect with other first years in a meaningful way and to serve as a creative coping method during his first semester.
In order to share “Our New Chapter” with those who may be going through similar experiences, William partnered with Student Wellbeing, a campus-wide initiative to support students’ health and wellbeing. They recognize that everyone deserves to feel good and hope students find ways to do that during their time at BU and beyond. In this gallery collaboration, twelve student profiles are on display highlighting their struggles and experiences, along with the resources available to support them.
