Zicklin students stop by the library during orientation

Posted by lrath on August 24, 2006

Here are a few pictures of the newly admitted Zicklin students that stopped by the Newman Library while on the Zicklin orientation tour of the Baruch campus (Saturday, Aug. 19th). What a great group and turnout. I had to stand on the Reference Desk to see everyone. I noticed a few people took some pictures while in the library. I hope you will send them to me via email!
