We know coming back after spring break isn’t always the easiest. However, the end of spring break also means that the end of the spring semester is right around the corner. In the race to the end, we know you’ll potentially be working on research papers, projects and preparing for tests, job interviews and graduate school applications. This is your friendly reminder that the UGL’s got your back.
Don’t let the awkward doors stop you… Greatness awaits inside!
- For starters, regular library hours resumed on Sunday, March 24 at 1pm. This means the UGL is back to being open 24 hours Sunday-Thursday, and closes at 2am on Fridays and Saturdays. Woohoo, late-night cram seshes!
- If you’re feeling a little overwhelmed with classwork, check out the library’s Savvy Researcher free workshop series. Topics covering citation management, finding international statistics and using the library after graduation might come in handy, among others.
- Are you graduating this May and officially on the job market? Stop by the Partners Desk to meet with a rep from the Career Center for a personal resume or cover letter critique. Check the Events Calendar for all dates/times.
- Last but not least, don’t forget to Ask A Librarian (in person or online!) if you have questions about, well, just about anything.
Let’s make the rest of the semester the best yet, #ClubUGL!
Whoever said there’s no such thing as a free lunch clearly hasn’t heard about the Lunchtime Discussion Series presented by the Office for Inclusion and Intercultural Relations.
Throughout the semester, the OIIR–in partnership with the Asian American Cultural Center, the Bruce D. Nesbitt African American Cultural Center, La Casa Cultural Latina, LGBT Resources Center, Native American House and the Women’s Resource Center–provide nourishment for your body and your brain with lunch and meaningful discussion. Held throughout the semester from noon-1pm (events take place on all week days, so something’s bound to work in your sched), bring a friend or two (or meet some new ones) as a wide variety of topics and issues are discussed while you nosh on lunch.
The UGL is happy to work with the OIIR thoroughout the semester as one of our partner organizations. If you can’t make any of the lunches, stop by the Partners Desk on the upper level to chat with reps from the cultural houses and organizations and learn more about their missions and services. Watch the UGL Events Calendar for dates and times.
If any of this sounds appealing, you can also swing by the bulletin board display in the lobby of the lower level of the UGL (pictured above). It’ll be up the month of September and features QR codes linking to more info about the individual organizations, printed schedules of this semester’s lunches (including topics and locations), and books on campus diversity that you can check out!
(Pro tip: Keep your eye on that bulletin board, as each month a different display promoting multiculturalism and diversity is featured.)
