To paraphrase Coleridge: Water, water everywhere, / Nor any time to think.

Two weeks ago.  Quiet Wednesday night on the UMD campus. Almost 6pm.

Viz Lab/MMAD Lab (emerging visual technologies and techniques and Motion and Media Across Disciplines) director Lisa Fitzpatrick is still at work, helping a student pull a paper together.

Then, without warning ... water starts rushing into the lab - threatening a million or so dollars worth of equipment.

Samantha Woller is interested in intersections.

But she's living at an interesting intersection of her own, where her psychology and philosophy majors meet along with her volunteer work and the importance of belief.
