What does freedom to read mean to you?

Freedom to Read Week takes place February 25 to March 1 and MRU has big plans to acknowledge this annual event that celebrates intellectual freedom. Come out and participate in on campus events like pop-up theatre, live challenged book readings, and an exciting panel discussion that encourages students, faculty, and staff to think about their right to freedom of expression.

Maker Studio speaker breaks down epic DIY project

Many of us have attempted to start a DIY (do-it-yourself) project pictured on Pinterest, or at least gone as far to buy the supplies with the best intentions only to get intimidated by the process. Join us in the Maker Studio on Tuesday, February 26 at 12:00p.m. for the impressive journey of how maker Erin Wainwright transformed a 1975 trailer to a polished retro gem. It will inspire you to tackle a project of your own!

Students learn using 360-degree simulation in the Immersion Studio

Nursing students regularly experience real-life emergency room and intensive care unit scenarios with the help of the Immersion Studio located on the 3rd floor of the Library. The 360-degree room allows professors to project images, video, and incorporate supporting sounds into class instruction to prepare students for applying their knowledge and skill to their profession once they graduate.
