Thanks to everyone for stopping by the Library & Learning Resource Center “Go for the Gold” Open House. We welcomed quite a few regulars, but also got to meet some new folk. The Olympic-themed event on July 18 was great fun for all, including special surprise visitor, Dr. Denton A. Cooley. Check out the photo album on Flickr.
We awarded lots of medals during the “Who Wants to be a Gold Medalist” trivia game, and several smaller prizes during the “Olympic Ring Toss” which turned out to be very challenging. For the “Count the Hearts” game, the grand prize—a signed copy of Dr. Cooley’s book, 100,000 Hearts—went to the person whose guess was closest to the number of candy hearts in the jar. There were 377 candy hearts in the jar, so the winning guess was 375, from Giselle Montes in Biostatistics & Epidemiology. She took home the book. Congratulations, Giselle! Laurens Wollersheim, cardiovascular surgery student, took home the jar of candy for his guess of 352. Just under that with a guess of 350, was Gloria Ramos, also from Biostatistics & Epidemiology, who took home the Starbucks gift card. (I think that puts that department at the top of the medal podium!)
Don’t wait until next year to stop by or call the library! We are here weekdays from 7:30-5:00 and are always ready to help you “up your game.” — Sonya
