The 2014 Fall Semester here at the University of Rio Grande/Rio Grande Community College is winding down. Spring registration has begun, so the Davis Library is already in the process of gearing up for another round of incoming students who will be embarking on a new educational journey in January 2015.
To help improve the first year experience for these undergraduates, Davis Library is asking all students who completed “Comic-Quest,” our new student orientation activity for the LA 100 Gateway to Success classes, to give us some feedback on that exercise.
The following survey link was sent to first year students’ Rio Grande email accounts. LA 100 Instructors were also asked to share this survey link with their students. The link has been made available here on our blog and can be accessed through Davis Library’s Facebook page.
If you are currently enrolled in LA 100 and completed the “Comic-Quest” exercise, please take a moment and complete the survey. Your responses will be used to improve and create a new orientation activity for the 2015 Spring Semester.
First Year Students—We Still Need Your Feedback!
The main goal of “Comic-Quest” was to offer students an enjoyable path to get acquainted with the library’s services, resources and staff. For many incoming students, college can be overwhelming and academic libraries intimidating. University libraries offer some services and resources that are typically not available in public or high school libraries. Consequently, Davis Library wants to make sure that our efforts and improvements to the exercise create an enjoyable learning opportunity for students entering this new academic environment.
If you have any questions about the survey or Davis Library’s new student orientation objectives, then please… “Ask Us!”
