Grant awarded to Murray Library

Murray Library, in coordination with the Athletic Training and Applied Health Sciences programs, was awarded a grant from Pennsylvania Grants for Open and Affordable Learning (PA GOAL). PA GOAL is funded through the Governor’s Emergency Education Relief Fund and is coordinated through the Pennsylvania Academic Library Consortium, Inc. The grant will be used to expand database content and access to the McGraw-Hill AccessPhysiotherapy and the FA Davis Athletic Training databases. E-Textbooks within these databases were chosen and will be used in eight selected courses this academic year. Students in those courses are expected to save thousands of dollars in textbook costs due to the availability of these textbooks in these expanded library resources. Use and student survey data will be used for future subscription decisions. The library wishes to thank faculty in these programs as well as the Office of Finance and Planning, and the Office of Development for their assistance in applying for and using these funds to reduce student textbook costs.

Group Exercise at the Fitness Center

Group exercise is back at the fitness center! We have over 20 classes a week throughout the fall semester. Classes start the week of 8/30 and are free. After that, employees can purchase a $40 membership that gives you access to book into ALL our classes. Just download the Glofox App and type in Falcon Fitness Center as your studio. We hope to see you there!
