A Dallas-Sized Welcome to Fall 2015

Showing the rest of us how it's done, the staff of the Dallas Center Library at the TWU T. Boone Pickens Institute
of Health Sciences-Dallas Center
gets in the spirit as they help welcome new and returning TWU students to the
Fall 2015 semester.  L-R first row, Lorena Nañez-Bonilla and Robbie Jones; second row, Ellen Hamlett, Mandie

Welcome back, everyone!!

It has been a hectic but fun first week of the Fall 2015 semester here at the T. Boone Pickens Institute of Health Sciences-Dallas Center.  It is great to see our previous students returning, and we look forward to getting to know all of our new students.  

Framed  Lorena Nañez-Bonilla, Li-
brary Assistant II at the Dallas Center 
Library, was in the right frame of 
mind to welcome new and returning 
students to the Fall 2015 semester at 
August 26, 2015.
On Wednesday, August 26, 2015, Student Life organized a Welcome Back get together on the third floor, with games and music for the students. SGA, the Counseling Center, Healthcare Christian Fellowship, and FC Dallas Soccer were there with handouts and cool things for the students.  Once again, Dallas Center Library staff members threw our creative hats in the ring and created a selfie photo booth for the students.  We had photo booth party accessories for the students to hold up--including mustaches, purple glasses, smiley faces, and more--along with a selfie stick belonging to the newest member of our group, Deedee McFadden.  Thanks, Deedee, for letting the students borrow it!  Student Life’s Chre Parnell added a TWU Student Life Instagram frame.  

It was great to see the students set down their heavy backpacks and have some fun with their classmates. We also thought the occasion would be a great opportunity for a Dallas Center Library staff photo. Should we make it our official staff photo?  ;)  You be the judge.

Have a great semester, everyone!!
