Distance Education Library News

On October 3, Rosanne Couston, Distance Education librarian, represented the library by making a brief presentation to students as part of the Fall Involvement Fair - Online Campus.  This event gave a virtual opportunity to online students who couldn't attend the in-person Fall 2022 Involvement Fair held at the Northwest Campus. She will also represent Distance Ed at the New Student Welcome 2022 on October 28 at the Downtown Campus.  This event is open to ALL Pima students, staff and faculty (and their families, too.) There will be carnival games and several ways for students to meet the community at the College along with the opportunity to win a $250 Tuition Award and other prizes.
