Follow the Feet to Library Meet & Greet

Orientation week went well. Now, in weeks 2 and 3  – November 12 to 23 – new students can pop in to Link 3 in James Joyce Library – follow the orange feet – have a chat, get a free coffee and at 12.30 enjoy some fun and games – like Cluedo on Wednesdays and bingo on Fridays, with spot prizes.
