Tomorrow (Dec 13): Last-Minute Academic Assistance and More...

Dear All,
I hope this message finds each of you well. I am writing to put the following program on your radar as it may aid in your preparation for finals. The Beary Needed Study Break program is more than group study opportunities and snacks (DIY yogurt bar, DIY nacho bar). Biology/Chemistry/Math/Physics tutors and Writing Fellows will be available at different times throughout the day to provide last-minute academic assistance. Bring your questions, outlines, drafts, etc. The goal is to help clear up any last minute confusion in the hopes that your finals will go even better. Below is the program breakdown.  If you have any questions, please be sure to let me know.

Emergency Meal Swipe Bank for Barnard Students

Image result for meal swipes image
Dear Students,

In an effort to help alleviate food insecurity towards the end of the semester, we are piloting an Emergency Meal Swipe Bank for any Barnard student in need of a meal.  

Beginning on Monday, December 10, simply hand the cashier your ID card at any Barnard Dining location where swipes are accepted (Hewitt and Liz's Place, along with Diana Center for breakfast, dinner and late night) and let the cashier know you need an emergency swipe.  You'll be swiped in using the emergency swipe bank.

Please note this is a pilot program and is currently available at the Barnard Dining locations to address an immediate need.  We will evaluate the program's success to determine how it will be executed in the future.   

We'd love to hear your feedback on the program, which can be emailed to to Julia Wang at jwang@barnard.edu.

Director, Campus Services Administration
