Stop by the main floor of the Rod library to check out the Harlem Renaissance posters. This exhibit is the product of the class Theatrical Arts & Society (THEA 1002-05) and their study of the Harlem Renaissance. Working in groups, students found a compelling pieces of visual art from the movement and used them as inspiration for their own creative works. These creative works demonstrate an understanding of the artistic movement, the frustration and triumph of creating something out of nothing, and the process of making and learning.

"The tracker measures steps taken, and combines it with user data to calculate distance walked, calories burned, floors climbed, and activity duration and intensity. It also measures sleep quality by tracking periods of restlessness, how long it takes the wearer to fall asleep, and how long they are actually asleep". - From Wikipedia
