Back to School

August 22, 2011

Back to School!

In the News: It’s Back-to-School time at Florida Atlantic University. We welcome new freshmen and transfer students as well as those returning for their second, third, and even last (!) year. Of course, we can’t forget to welcome new faculty, too. Take a look at some of the books the library has on college life. Some of them are electronic, but many more are in the “old school” paper format. Settle down with one when time permits and enjoy the rest of the year.
