For the past eight years, Duke University undergraduates have been coming to Hillsborough, North Carolina, each spring as part of Small Town, USA, a class at the Center for Documentary Studies taught by Susie Post-Rust. Each student chooses a photography project to pursue within the town and spends the semester documenting that story. All of the photo projects with accompanying audio recordings are now online at smalltown-usa.com.

Service Learning at Duke and the Hillsborough Tourism Board provided grants to fund the smalltown-usa.com website.
