Are you interested in becoming more engaged at UH? Maximizing your potential as a student researcher? Getting the most out of campus research services? Meeting students in other art and design programs?
Come to Jenkins Library Student Ambassador gatherings in the Architecture and Art Library. These informal half-hour gatherings include a short demonstration of library equipment, resources, or research techniques, as well as conversation with other students about course work.
The Jenkins Library Student Ambassadors are student leaders with advanced research skills. They are here to help direct other art and design students to resources and research information, so that everyone has what they need to work efficiently and make the most of their time at UH.
Gatherings take place on the Architecture and Art Library’s upper mezzanine from 10:30-11 every Tuesday. The library is located on the first floor of the College of Architecture and Design building
