My oldest nephew’s first grade class is learning about maps, map-making, cities, towns, and all things of that sort. In order to help the class learn, they read a book called Flat Stanley. My awesome nephew has his own “Flat Stanley” and sent Stanley to visit SUU and Cedar City. After showing Flat Stanley around for a bit, I’m proud to report that he’s a proud member of Tbirdnation and he’s a little sad to be sent back to my nephew on Monday. Here are some pictures of what Flat Stanley did while he was here and some of the things you might want to see next time you’re around these parts.
Thanks for visiting SUU, Flat Stanley! We hope you enjoyed your stay and when it comes time for you to choose your college, please consider SUU!
That’s right.. SUU is evolving.
How is it changing? Our own SUU Bookstore is mixing up the possible ways to get textbooks next semester.
Now, instead of only having the option to buy the book from the bookstore and hope that you can sell it back later, students will be able to pay smaller rental fees in order to rent the textbook for the semester. No more worrying about trying to sell your books during the last week of school! The school bookstore will also offer E Textbooks for those who own any type of E Reader.
In order to raise awareness of these changes, SUU had a PR stunt on campus last week. Our very own Sam Taylor helped with the campaign to notify students of these changes. They had candy for students, music playing out on the quad, stickers, and one more thing… A giant box fort.
Yes, in order to spread this new knowledge, they built a huge building out of cardboard boxes. It was awesome! One of my good friends Kendall was over the project of building the fort. I spent a little bit of my afternoon there helping build the fort and painting it. It was a lot of fun and raised a lot of awareness for the changes our library has coming our way!
