Yesterday I went to a meeting of the Liberal Arts and Engineering Studies (LAES) 301/302 Project Learning class, taught by Grace Yeh and Michael Haungs, and held in a computer lab here at Kennedy Library.

Back in the fall, I wrote a post about a new student-run and student-written academic journal I was about to start, called Symposium: Student Journal of Science and Math. At that time, we had the initial design by our Branding Director Natalie Rich and the idea to create an outlet that promotes scientific discussion and research among students of the College of Science and Math (COSAM). Now we’re in full swing!
We invite you to an award ceremony and reception from 12:30 to 2 p.m. Friday, May 2, to celebrate Cal Poly’s 2014 Excellence in Academic Libraries Award.
