Over 200 students, faculty and staff attended the first Library Student Expo, held April 22 and 23 at the Downtown and Parham Road campus libraries.
Through their instructors, students submitted assignments completed as part of their coursework. Items came from multiple disciplines, ranging from Biology to English to Middle college
Projects included artwork, posters, sculptures, and even a student directed video. Refreshments were served.
Students were impressed with their peers’ work. One student remarked “They made this in biology? I have to take biology!”
Another student asked, “Can I enter my work next year?”
Dr. Susan Hunter, the Dean of Nursing and Allied Health, encouraged colleagues to attend the Expo.
“I had the opportunity to stop by the library and see this Expo and I was not expecting what I saw. The students’ projects were sophisticated, professional and creative. I think you would be amazed at the depth and breadth of these student work examples.”
Thanks to all students and faculty participated in this inaugural event! A big thank you to Beth Bensen-Barber, Kristin Hott, Jerrod Hunter, Chris Thomas and Shalini Upadhyaya for volunteering their students’ work. Hopefully next year will be even bigger!
The Library Student Expo is Reynolds Library’s spring semester event. The Expo showcases Reynolds students’ accomplishments completed during the school year. In the fall the library hosts the Library Open House, which introduces new and returning students to the library. Both events are free; students, faculty and staff are encouraged to attend. Dates for the 2016 Library Open House will be announced in September.
