Musical Stress Busters in the Library

At the library, we are no stranger to the fact that finals are a stressful time for everyone. Next week, students will be able to relax to the music of our very own Jackson Wright right in the library! (Jackson is not only a library tech specialist, he is also the bassist of the band Wylder. Check them out on Spotify!)

Join us at noon at the Parham Road Campus library on Monday December 10th and Tuesday December 11th for this limited engagement.

Community College Transfer Students Making an Impact at Elite Colleges

NPR recently reported on how Princeton admitted 13 transfer students this fall – the first time Princeton has done so in THREE DECADES!

Because of the success of those students, Princeton has decided to reinstate the transfer program by encouraging students from “low-income families, the military and from community colleges.”

Reynolds Librarians wanted to highlight some of the article’s findings and encourage you all to read it – and apply to Princeton!

  • Community colleges enroll 41 percent of all U.S. undergraduates.
  • 56 percent of Native American undergrads are enrolled in community colleges.
  • 52 percent of Hispanic undergrads are enrolled in community colleges.
  • 43 percent of African American undergrads are enrolled in community colleges.

You can find the article here: https://www.npr.org/2018/12/04/667381514/top-colleges-seeking-diversity-from-a-new-source-transfer-students

We are so proud of all of you!

Smiling Students @Library Open House

Reynolds students made our days this week at the Library Open Houses on each campus. The “Tailgate in the Library” was most remembered because you, our students, came to engage with us and the resources in the Reynolds Libraries. With over 400 students, faculty and staff in attendance, we enjoyed every moment with you. Thanks for taking our survey, playing Library Bingo & cornhole with us, and chatting over hot dogs!
