For the past ten years, Duke University undergraduates have been documenting Hillsborough, North Carolina, each spring as part of Small Town, USA, a course 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.
