Students “Book It” to Explore Opportunities for International Study

Richardson Library hosts and International Studies interest meeting.


More than 75 students packed the Richardson Library’s Learning Center Classroom to ask questions and learn more about the many opportunities HSU students have to study abroad.

Ross Pride, freshman public relations major from Arlington, came to the meeting to specifically learn about the application process. 

“I’ve talked to other people who have been through the program and I wanted to see how I could get involved,” said Pride. 

The informational meeting, organized as the second of the library’s “Book It” information series, is one of many ongoing efforts designed to connect students with information on topics of interest to them. 

Ellen Simmons, periodicals and documents librarian, heads up the “Book It” program and is excited about hosting more of these events. 

“Students have responded so well that we are going to have two more sessions in the spring,” said Simmons. 

Although future topics have not yet been determined, students are invited to submit ideas for practical topics on which library staff will seek to campus experts to speak.
