Nachos for Norris Nation! Learn More

NACHO BAR: FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 8

The library is launching a new student organization called Norris Nation. This group will give you a chance to engage with the library at special Norris Nation events. Here you can provide feedback on what you think the library does well, where you think we can improve, and what you would like to see the library do more of, or add to its services and/or resources.  Every time a member of Norris Nation participates at an event, they move along the Norris Nation pathway in the UIS Connection system, with various points along the pathway earning you special Norris Nation swag!

NACHO BAR! Our first event is this Friday (Sept. 8)!  It’s an after-hours event at the library, from 6:30 – 8:30 pm and involves a free nacho bar. Who doesn’t love nachos!?!? The event is listed on UIS Connection. Feel free to RSVP in advance (not required.)
