Here is some very important information about the library and finals week.

1. We have “Study, Play, Repeat” activities available all week. Scattered throughout the library are places where you can play with play-doh, cut out paper snowflakes, build with Legos, color bookmarks, and solve word searches and crosswords. Give your brain some study breaks and have some fun!

2. The computer lab in the library is a Quiet Zone this week. The door is shut to reduce noise, but feel free to come and go. This would be a great, quiet place to study or take an online exam.

 

3. There is a Study Music playlist (https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLd9hpb1bsSmIVDvG0rnN06H_CKfRGrfEu) on our YouTube channel. It is a compilation of other playlists that contain classical music and instrumental music–hours of songs that will help you concentrate and relax while you study.

 

Good luck on your finals this week!!

Message from Dean’s office re: printing problems

Note: Below is  the text of an email sent out to regional campus students Monday, Oct. 17 2016 about the problems with the pay-for-print system.

Dear students,

I am writing this to inform you that the Dean’s Office is aware of the problems that you may have been experiencing with the pay-for-print system at Miami this semester.  The university’s IT department and our 3rd party vendor that manages pay-for-print have jointly been hard at work behind the scenes to resolve it. This is a technical problem, and thus it is impossible to say exactly when it will be solved. However, we believe we are making solid progress towards a solution.

In the meantime, thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to pursue a solution.  Until the issue is resolved, if you are unable to print a document please go to the help desk in GRD 001 or MOSLER 304 for further assistance.  We will update you once the situation has been resolved.

Dr. Robert B. Davis
Associate Dean for Academic Affairs
