Student outreach and engagement is challenging during a pandemic! By evening hours, students, faculty and staff alike, are Zoomed-out after having classes and meetings on Zoom all day. The libraries’ Student Outreach and Engagement Committee would not be deterred, however, and enjoyed connecting with students virtually a few times throughout the fall semester for fun trivia nights. “Have a Hoot with Kahoot!” featuring the app Kahoot, offered fun, fast and family-friendly competition, along with bragging rights. The trivia game was also a great stressbuster during exams.
Students were also introduced last fall to what a “Zine” is. The event “Zoom in Zine Out!” was hosted by the committee, and taught participants about Zine culture and creating their own Zine.
