Welcome Snell Library Co-ops!

This week four Northeastern co-ops have started working at Snell Library to assist in various departments through the summer and fall semesters. Here is a little bit about each of them: Kelsey Strout, Marketing & Events Co-op “My name is Kelsey Strout and I am a middler in the Art and Design program at Northeastern. I traded a small town in New Jersey for the big and beautiful city of Boston. I have had a passion for art my entire life and feel most comfortable when partaking in creative activities. I am working toward a BA in Art and Design and a minor in Business Administration with the hopes of becoming an event designer after graduating. In my spare time, I enjoy drawing, babysitting, going to the beach and baking.” Will Macowski, Graphic Design Co-op “I’m a fourth year Graphic Design major going for a minor in Sociology. Outside of my studies, I enjoy the fine arts and love to draw and sculpt. I’ve recently ventured into the realm of tattooing and frequently transform my living room into a makeshift tattoo parlor.” William Bratches, University Archives Co-op “My name is William Bratches, and I am a middler majoring in history with two minors in business and political science. Although Boston is now home, I am originally from a small town on the Connecticut shoreline. Besides history, I enjoy music, running, reading, cooking, biking, and recently picked up tailoring!” Mike Helly, DMDS Co-op Co-op student Mike Helly is a graphic design major at Northeastern University. Web design and book layout are the areas of design that he finds most interesting. In his free time Mike enjoys to skateboard, play basketball, and listen to hip hop. Welcome new co-ops and best of luck within each of your positions! We are so happy to have you 🙂

Art & Design Lab in Snell!

With finals week fast approaching and students all over campus getting ready for the end of the semester, art and design students are bound to start camping out in Ryder to work in the computer labs for their final projects. It can get pretty crowded, and difficult to work around class time blocks in the labs- so what do you do? Snell conveniently offers a full room of state of the art computers equipped with all of the software you find on the computers in Ryder. The BIG difference is that this lab, the Digital Media Design Studio on the second floor of Snell Library, comes with knowledgable staff who are there to help you with your projects and assist you with your design questions. You can also reserve a computer station by calling the studio at 617.373.2465 to ensure you have a space in the studio. Stop by and check it out!
