Hoops Season is Here

I really enjoy college basketball and I am very excited to watch St. Norbert College’s men’s basketball team this year. All the starters are returning from last year’s NCAA appearance and they have added division one transfer Kam Cerroni.  On paper, this is coach Gary Grzesk’s best team. Check out a game. Here’s a link to the Green Knights schedule. http://www.snc.edu/athletics/basketballm/schedule.html

New TV Studio

St. Norbert College has a new space in the Miram B. and James J. Mulva Library called the Mulva Studio. It’s impressive!

According to Kristin Vogel, director of the library at St. Norbert, the Mulva Studio “is a groundbreaking sort of learning environment that offers a model to libraries throughout the region and country.”

Approximately 150 students can find significant study space at the Mulva Studio’s booths, tables and couch clusters. They have the ability to move seamlessly from technology-driven work to low-tech techniques that facilitate learning and from group work to solitary study. Writeable surfaces (surfaces designed for dry-erase markers) are generously placed throughout the space.

I’m excited about the space because it will house The ongoing “Conversations at St. Norbert” television show which will be recorded in the studio suite and is designed with a glass wall for transparency so students can observe taping. Students are also able to use the studio suite and audio room for their own video projects.

For a tour of the facility go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0HDr8smZrbM.

An open house will be held on Monday, Sept. 16, from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.Come in and take a look.
