New Student Tips for Around Campus by Library Student Workers

As you are settling into the fall semester, our student workers have provided a few tips and tricks to help make life on campus a little bit easier:

Tip #1: Door seem impossible to get through? Try the handicap button. If the person in front of you used the handicap button, it will take superhuman strength to pry them open on your own. BONUS: During flu season you can use your elbow and spread fewer germs!

Tip #2: Trouble finding resources? Visit the reference desk on the first floor of the library where smiling, knowledgeable faces hang out waiting to help you locate information!

Tip #4: Can’t find what you’re looking for on the new website? When you go to http://www.metrostate.edu hit END on your keyboard and the majority of the links you need (Library, D2L, eservices, portal) can be found on the bottom of the page.
