A Few Quick Reminders for DePaul Undergrads…

Next Tuesday, September 24, is shaping up to be a busy day at DePaul. With an important academic deadline and a couple of campus events on the docket for that day, you’d better get your pens and calendars ready…

Students, remember that September 24 is the absolute last day you will be able to drop a course without penalty. Of course, who would want to drop an English class? Everyone knows those are the most fun….

After months of preparation, the library will be having a special grand opening to celebrate the completion of the beautiful new Information Commons. Join library staff Tuesday from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. for behind-the-scenes tours, a meet and greet with the library’s peer tutor team, a raffle, and much, much more — including some button-making, for all you crafty types out there. And keep in mind, we are smack dab in the middle of Banned Books Week (September 22 through 28), so there are sure to be some interesting conversations at this shindig. Hope to see you there!
