Skateboarding: New Jersey-Mexico Connection

What does New Jersey, Mexico, and skateboarding have in common?

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

To be honest, I myself don’t even know! But Prof. Kathleen Smith-Wenning does. On Nov. 7 at 2 PM in the Gabert Library Makerspace, she will be explaining what the history and connection is between these three things. If you’re a skateboarder, a New Jerseyan, a Mexican, or all three at the same time, or just curious like I am, stop on by next week!

P.S. Bringing your skateboard is COMPLETELY optional!

Cranes and Snowflakes with Prof. Bellen-Boyer

Ever wanted to learn how to make paper cranes and snowflakes? Or, like me, you’ve forgotten how to and want to relearn those motor skills again!

Prof. Lisa Bellen-Boyer will be hosting an origami (from Japanese ori meaning “folding” and kami meaning “paper”) workshop on Friday, Oct. 26, and Thursday, Dec. 6. On Friday, we will be learning how to fold origami cranes among other things. On Dec. 6, we will be making paper snowflakes in both simple and elaborate ways.

Midterms stress relief!

It’s Midterm exams week (Oct. 17 – Oct. 23) and that means a lot of studying and a lot of stress for students and faculty! We’ve opened up the Gabert Library Makerspace with movie showings and arts and crafts activities so you can unwind as your heavy brain processes all the studying you’ve been doing. (As of right now, Moana is being shown. You’re welcome! You’re welcome! And thank you!)

Also, if you have any recommendations of movies to show during finals week, email James Cox and we can set up a time and date to watch your recommendation.
