A Year in the Life of Himmelfarb

A Year in the Life of HimmelfarbThroughout this year, Himmelfarb has provided services, workshops and fun events to help students, faculty and staff be informed, enlightened and maintain a healthy balance in their everyday life. Our workshops and events centered on supporting publishing, promoting your scholarly work, Research Day workshops and videos. Our other events focused on fun initiatives for keeping healthy and relaxation, from the annual art show to study break activities during finals. Below are a few highlights of this past year.
