End-of-the-year celebrations

The bright orange 2003 sign is ready to be mounted on Nassau Hall for the June 3 commencement ceremony. Electrical shop staffers, from left, Renato Carazzai and Dave Shannon, worked on this project and helped out with the traditional display of the numerical lighted signs that designate class headquarters on campus for Reunions. The two are shown here in a University facility where the signs are stored until they are brought out for the end-of-the-year celebrations. Carazzai has been helping to make the signs since he joined the Princeton staff 44 years ago.
