Current & Upcoming Events 


First Gen Proud #studywithus - Join other First Gen Proud students and library staff for live #studywithme sessions on Zoom. All are welcome! We work and take breaks together where we share our goals, talk about our semester and get stuff done.
Every Wednesday through the end of April.


Almost all Alkek One workshops will be offered virtually; however, we will have limited seats available in the Alkek 105 instruction space. If you would like to request a seat in Alkek 105, please email the instructor. Social-distancing and mask-wearing policies will be enforced and the instructor will Zoom in for the session.
