Happy Birthday Post Learning Commons!

Happy Birthday Post Learning Commons!

 

Isn’t it hard to believe it’s been a year since the John and Maryanne Hennings Post Learning Commons opened its doors?
The Post Learning Commons has become such an integral part of campus life that it seems like it’s been here all along.

The impact of the Post Learning Commons is astounding in just its first year –

  • student library usage is up by 70 percent,
  • we have exceeded 77,000 visitors in one month,
  • nearly one in four students visits four or more times a week,

And most importantly, our students have made this special place their own.

To celebrate this milestone for the University, please join us for Birthday Cake on Thursday, April 4, 2013 at 1 p.m. in the atrium of John R. Post ’60 Academic Center.
