Join us as we celebrate International Education Week 2019! International Education Week is the theme of many on-campus events and the library is no exception! See Salve Today’s article for full list of activities.
The Salve community will have multiple opportunities to hear about the experiences and insights of Salve Regina students who have studied abroad as well as learn about new national scholarship opportunities.
The library will host a week-long trivia contest as well as exhibit entries in the “Capture It!” photo contest (come and vote for your favorites!). Check this blog or our Facebook or Twitter pages every day starting Monday for a new trivia question.
Submit your entry by in-person ballot at the library. One winner of a $10 Amazon.com gift card will be selected each day by random draw and winner will be contacted via Salve email (only correct trivia answers will be entered into the drawing).
This contest has ended. Thanks to all who participated and congrats to all of our winners! See you again next year!
