First-Year Students Played to Learn

385 students played the Game of Life: DiMenna-Nyselius Edition during the first two weeks of the fall semester to learn about library spaces and services. This self-guided tour could be played individually or with groups of friends by picking up a game board at the circulation desk and using a smart phone to navigate all three floors of the library.  FYE CONNECT credit was awarded to all players and the following students won prizes:

  • Peter G. (bag of Fairfield University gear)
  • Joe R. (ladder ball set)
  • Corinne C. (salt lamp)
  • Maura M. (decorative string lights)
  • Mark A. (ping pong game)
  • Molly Q. (external charger)
  • Cassidy R. (pop socket)
  • Charlotte K. (pop socket)
  • Madeline D. (mini portable fan)
  • Lauren N.   (beach chair)
  • Madison M. (smart phone photo printer)
  • Tamara P. ($50 StagBucks)

Thank you to the EN11 instructors who encouraged students to play the game and to the Office of Student Engagement for sponsoring the prizes.
