Love podcasts? UM faculty produce a preponderance of podcast programs ranging from Practically Perfect Parenting (Professors Sommers-Flanagan and Polanchek) and BigBiology (Professor Woods) to wild land firefighting On the Line (Professors Palmer, Dumke, and Ruby) and popular culture, education, and business from A New Angle (Professor Angle). For posterity, we preserve all of these podcasts in ScholarWorks. Plug in, pick one, and prepare to be pleased!
Writing a paper or crafting a speech? Tutors from the Writing and Public Speaking Center support undergraduate and graduate students, alumni, faculty, and staff as they work on a variety of academic, professional, and creative communication tasks. Tutors are available on the main level of Mansfield Library on Sundays from 5:00pm-8:30pm AND Monday and Tuesday from 5:00pm-8:00pm. No appointment is required for these drop-in tutoring sessions.
We're so grateful to our students who serve and have served in our nation's Armed Forces. That's why we created a Veteran's Study Room that recently moved to room #407 at Mansfield Library. It includes a PC computer, widescreen monitor, and whiteboard for productive studying, writing, and reading. View Mansfield Library's floor plan or listen to an audio tour to locate the it and other group study rooms. To reserve, veterans can request the username and password from the VETS Office. It can be reserved up to two weeks in advance for three hours at a time.
