Jess Rose, student worker in our Reference Department, represented Columbia College last night at the Ninth Annual Citywide Undergraduate Poetry Festival. Jess read three poems, followed by the readings of students from 11 other Chicago universities. It is quite an honor to be chosen to read in the Citywide festival. Congratulations, Jess!

We also wish to congratulate Nate Gray, who has just been accepted to the University of Michigan's Graduate Library School, the School of Information, where he will attend school in the fall.
