Megaphone blasting "IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT!"

Based on last year’s feedback — yes, we really do listen to your input! — please be aware of modifications we’re making to the 2023 Spring Term Festival on Friday, May 19 to reduce crowding and improve attendee flow.

  • Both the Main Level and Lower Level 1 of Leyburn Library will be used to display posters and screen multimedia (films, digital stories, etc.)
  • If you wish your class to attend and present, please sign up at ASAP. The form will close on Monday, May 15 at 9 am EST. We will email all professors with a map of their locations by Wednesday, May 17.
  • For classes with films/movies/multimedia: Please choose to present from 12 noon-12:50 pm OR 1-2 pm.
    • If presenting at 12 noon, please arrive by 11:50 am on Friday, May 19 to set up.
    • If presenting at 1 pm, please arrive by 12:50 pm on Friday, May 19 to set up.
  • For classes with posters: Please plan to divide students into two blocks: Half present from 12 noon-12:50 pm and the other half present from 1-2 pm.
  • To have posters printed by the University Library, please upload them to no later than Sunday, May 14 at 9 am EST. Posters must be sized at 30×42 inches and submitted as a PDF. There is no charge for printing.
    • If you would like to schedule a 15-minute session for your class about poster creation best practices, please email

  • Light refreshments  — fresh fruit and veggie platter, plus assorted bags of chips and granola bars — will be offered, but single-use water bottles will NOT be available. Please plan to bring a reusable water bottle. ITS, the Office of the Provost, and the University Library are committed to supporting the Office of Sustainability’s policy to reduce single-use plastics.
