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!
Snell Library will be offering additional services during finals week to help you get the most out of your cram session before that big exam. The first is adding extended hours of public safety escort van services. Starting at 9:30pm on Tuesday, April 19th, personal safety escort van services will run from the Library Quad to student residence halls. The service will run every half hour from 9:30pm until 3:30am each night through Thursday, April 29th at 3:30am. For more information about public safety at Northeastern visit http://www.northeastern.edu/publicsafety/ In addition to the escort services, the Cyber Cafe will have extended hours to provide fresh food and snacks throughout finals week. The new hours of operation will be: Thursday, April 21st: 7am-12am Friday, April 22nd: 7am-5pm Monday, April 25th to Thursday, April 28th: 7am-12am And of course we also have so many resources here at Snell Library to help you wrap up that final research paper or close out that group project.
