First Place: Elizabeth Loudon, The Journey of Solomon Northup

Second Place: Marisa Wetzel, Steps to Self Care

Third Place: Nicholas Fuller, Favorite Places to Study on Campus

A huge thank you to everyone who submitted an infographic. Determining first, second, and third place was a very difficult with only a few points separating everyone. All of the submissions show a great deal of skill, talent, and hard work. All the entries may be viewed here.

Library Research Prizes

The duPont-Ball Library competition for the library’s Evans C. Johnson Research Prize and the R. Neil Scott Research Prize is now open. The deadline for all entries is Friday 27 March 2015. Both Research Prizes are open to all students who completed a research paper in ENGL 101, or First-Year Seminar (FSEM) during the last calendar year (spring, summer, or fall semesters 2014). The contest is sponsored by the duPont-Ball Library to encourage the thorough, effective, creative, and ethical uses of research resources. $200 in prizes may be awarded for each prize.

Therapy Dogs Tuesday 10 March

Stressed about your midterms? Feeling worn out staying up late writing papers? Sounds like you need to visit with some therapy dogs. Come to the library on Tuesday 10 March from 10:00 – 4:00 and take a break with some adorable stress relievers.

Therapy dogs are specially trained dogs that are very friendly to people and other animals. Spending just a few minutes with them helps relieve stress and promote relaxation.


Infographics Contest

The duPont-Ball Library is sponsoring an infographics contest for Spring 2015 semester. The winners will receive an Amazon gift card. An infographic visually presents research and data in an aesthetically pleasing, concise, and easy to understand way. You do not need to be a graphic artist to create an infographic, just be able to present data coherently and creatively.

All Stetson University students enrolled in the Spring 2015 semester are eligible to enter the contest. Visit this page for more information.

Wireless Networks Across Campus

Information Technology worked to simplify the wireless network on campus. You will need to connect to the wireless network by searching for “Faculty/Staff” or “Student” as appropriate. You will use your Stetson username (the first part of your email address before the @ symbol) and password to connect to the network. Once you have connected for the first time, you will no longer need to enter this information in the future.

In all residence halls, the wireless network remains “Stetson University” and requires no login information. While the duPont-Ball Library has both the “Stetson University” as well as the new “Faculty/Staff” and “Student” wireless networks, “Stetson University” would be the preferred network to connect to as it covers the entire building.
