It’s not goofing off! It’s learning with your hands! Did you know that, when your hands move and touch, your brain fires in new and creative ways?
So, taking a break to just fiddle can actually stimulate learning! And we’ve got loads to fiddle with! From Legos to popper pads, from thinking putty to sensory sand, there’s always something worth getting your hands on in the Makerspace!

The semester can start to feel pretty crazy and chaotic pretty darn quick!  So, let’s keep it all under control by getting a plan together!  A grid dot notebook is a simple and surprisingly effective tool to do just that. 
You bring your schedule, and we’ll bring the notebooks, along with tips and tricks to design layouts and strategies that will keep you organized, de-stressed, and ahead of the curve all the way through the term.

What makes you, YOU? Are you creative, vibrant, tough, resilient? What are the cornerstones of your unique personality?  Understanding your personality type can help better succeed in your coursework and your career choices.  In this special event, Career & Employability Resources will team up with the Learning Commons to help you discover your unique qualities and map them to your corresponding spirit animal!  Together, we’ll make personalized buttons, so you can remind yourself, and remind the world, how awesome you really are!

What keeps you going? How will you stay on track all the way through the semester? Meaning creates motivation and that equals long-term success. A Motivation Board makes that meaning tangible for you to see every day! So, bring poems, pictures, drawings, or anything else that inspires you, and we’ll put our best creative craft tools to use and help make a special Motivation Board just for you!

Posters can be great works of art, powerful communication tools, or, ummm, a requirement for a class. Posters combine practical simplicity with design elegance to capture an audience’s attention. Whether for a course, an event, or just because, we’ll help you design and create your own poster, ensuring that your text, graphics, and layout are all sending the right message – your message! We’ll print out your posters so you can take them home that day!

Finals are coming, homework is due, projects are looming, and stresses are, too! Ugh! The end of the semester can be an anxious time, so take a minute to decompress in our de-stressing lab! We’ll have activities to calm the nerves and unfurrow those brows in simple, fun, and silly ways. Stop by whenever you need to relax and recharge your batteries. You’ll feel refreshed, renewed, and ready to tackle that end-of-semester workload.
