THOMAS JEFFERSON UNIVERSITY

Dawson Skipper is a graphic design major. Originally, Dawson planned to major in math because he enjoys solving problems, but he discovered that graphic design used the same problem-solution approach and offered opportunities for him to express himself and communicate ideas to others. When not designing, Dawson may be found working on an old BMW, listening to music, taking pictures, or playing video games.
