LITS New Student Orientation Highlights: Welcome Class of 2017!

We are having a FANTASTIC time welcoming the Class of 2017 to campus, and we can't wait to see returning students in a few days!

We want every new student to know....
  • LITS = Library, Information, and Technology Services. Come to us for help with anything library, research, or technology related!
  • We are friendly! We want to talk to you and help you navigate this maze of amazing resources (not to mention the maze of our beautiful building). No question is too small!
  • The library is full of beautiful spaces and treasures: artwork, special exhibits, quiet nooks, soaring Hogwarts-esque ceilings, fun events, and of course all the things you can discover through books, music, and movies. As our 2013 orientation tag line says: "Ideas grow here!" Come explore and be inspired!

A few highlights from this action-packed week:

Impromptu dance party at the button-making station in the library courtyard
Meeting new students and their families at the LITS Family Welcome Reception on Wednesday
The amazing Zine Club making magic at the zine station in the courtyard
Returning students leaving words of wisdom for new students on "leaves" climbing the double staircase.
Stop by and add your own!
Our awesome "Ideas grow here" LITS tshirts!

New students, we hope to see you Friday night at M&C's in the library! And the LITS fun doesn't end with orientation... stay tuned for the LITS Scavenger Hunt, Wikipedia Edit-a-thons, a video game-themed Game Night, and more throughout the semester!
