Celebrating Five Years of the Post Learning Commons

To register for Wine and Cheese Reception*, click HERE

In the spring of 2012, the John and Maryanne Hennings Post
Learning Commons
,
a twenty-first century technology-inspired space was dedicated to complement the Library’s traditional services.
Located in the heart of campus, the 37,000 square foot facility is the intellectual hub of the University.

Designed as a one-stop shop for students with study needs: from
resources to expertise and instruction spaces, from information
technology to tutoring, from collaborative meeting rooms to quiet group study rooms, Post Learning Commons offers a variety of
student support services and environments. The expanded seating and cafe offers the extended campus community spaces to meet
informally in small groups.

Additionally, there is the Gerard Manley Hopkins, S.J., Special
Collections with a gallery for art collections to be on display.
The Wachterhauser Seminar Room, a technology-rich classroom type space, is a sought-after space for staff and faculty to use for
campus meetings and small events.

In anticipation of the upcoming 5th anniversary of the building of this versatile and well utilized facility, we have a series of
celebratory events planned.

New Exhibit at the Library

Throughout the month of March, Francis A. Drexel Library will host an exhibit of sample pieces from the 2008 Mordechai Anielewicz Creative Arts Competition. Named for the heroic teenager who organized Jewish resistance and gave his life fighting in the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising of 1943, this annual competition provides students in grades 7-12 in all public, private and parochial schools in Philadelphia and its suburbs, with both a forum and opportunity to respond to the Holocaust by means of creative expression. Panels of judges with expertise in various creative disciplines evaluate the 400 or so submissions. The artistic submissions are mounted and exhibited professionally by the Moore College of Art and Design. All of the winning written submissions are published in a booklet and distributed at the awards ceremony which is held each spring at Moore, in conjunction with the exhibition. For more information, contact Anne Krakow, Associate Director for Public Services and Programming, akrakow@sju.edu or x1906.
