Another Successful Fiesta Celebration

Briscoe Library hosted their annual Fiesta Celebration on April 13th. Students participated in a corn hole competition, coloring fiesta designs, creating paper fiesta flowers, and taking pictures at the fiesta photo wall. The Office of the Registrar also set up a booth with information for students. Participants won a variety of prizes including mystery books, mini piñatas, goodie bags, and more!


In addition to the Fiesta Celebration, the library held an Awards Ceremony for the 5th Annual Photography Competition: Image of a Pandemic. Two out of the four winners were present to receive a certificate in honor of their photography award.
