Student using TechGuard Locker

Bulky laptop dragging you down? Introducing TechGuard Locker Bay

Notice anything new in the Biz Hub this semester? Since our ritzy remodel last semester, the Biz Hub has been getting even more in sync with what students and faculty need. For those of you who might spend an entire afternoon in the business building, this new addition really comes as a relief. Enter, the Tech Guard Locker Bay.  
 
Rounding out at ten lockers total, each handy compartment comes complete with an AC outlet and USB port, so you can charge while you store!  
 
For reference, these sleek new lockers are stacked nearest to the C337 Team Room, at the south entrance of the Biz Hub space. Easy to use instructions are located on the side of the lockers, as they are self-serve. All available lockers are lit in green and those in-use are in red. Simply create (and make a note of) a four-digit numerical password and enjoy!

Pi Day

Celebrate Pi and Eat Pie

Come and enjoy delicious pie bites at the Business Library on Friday, March 9th, in recognition of Pi Day!  March 14th is the official celebration.  However, since most people will be away on spring break, the Libraries are honoring the holiday early.  Luscious treats will be available after 8 am.

“Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world. Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159.

Pi has been calculated to over one trillion digits beyond its decimal point. As an irrational and transcendental number, it will continue infinitely without repetition or pattern. While only a handful of digits are needed for typical calculations, Pi’s infinite nature makes it a fun challenge to memorize, and to computationally calculate more and more digits.” – www.piday.org
