The Milstein Hall dome was packed for the inaugural RAW EXPO as more than 50 student-designed projects from seven of Cornell's colleges were on display. The theme of the show — raw — was conceived of to encourage the display of work in its "intermediary [and] process state." The range of projects included planes, robots, furniture, fashion, sculpture, and architectural models.

Organized by the student group Association, RAW EXPO was held ahead of Thumbnail's Pecha Kucha–style lecture event, RAW.
