by Library News on 2022-11-15T08:52:32-08:00 | 0 Comments

Hello CSUEB students!

Welcome to the Student Takeover Blog! Where every once in a while, student library ambassadors get to write directly to you, the students, on the library news page. This includes events or resources you might enjoy or benefit from at the Library.

Who are Student Library Ambassadors? We are a team of students dedicated to community engagement, creating resources to benefit students/staff/faculty, and supporting those with questions or concerns at our lovely information desk on the first floor of the Core. That's only a fraction of the type of projects we work on here at the library, but it's enough to give you an idea about the people writing to you now!

Here’s the deal, it's almost the end of the semester and we know you're feeling the pressure of finals, deadlines, and all that coffee sitting at the bottom of your stomach😅. Let us help you! We're giving you this one stop shop with all of the Core library resources that can help you make your way to the end of the fall semester.

Events & Activities Core/SCAA

Here is a list of events that the Library is hosting up until the end of the semester. These events are for your benefit, so please take advantage of them. They provide things like information that will help you, opportunities to meet people, a time to relax during your day, and of course a lot of these events include ✨free stuff ✨ especially free information! A feature we all know and love so please come by!

    • Tuesday from 12:15-1:15pm, 11/15/22

Believe us, you're not alone in the procrastination or burnout game. School is really, really hard! Nevermind school + work + extracurriculars! In this workshop, you'll be discussing ways to find focus and make goals for yourself. How can you move from the couch to your computer? We don't really know🤭, but hopefully you'll figure it out if you attend this workshop!

  • Let's Talk About Graphic Novels!: Lee Adams
    • Thursday from 4pm-5pm, 11/17/22

This is one, in a series of workshops called "Burnout Busters." Engaging in activities that aren't school related can help you relax, free yourself from stress, and become more motivated to finish that assignment you were dreading to work on! Especially if you're a comic book lover or admirer.
