National Engineers Week Celebration Draws 1,300 Area Students to University
Could you build a bridge using paper and scotch tape, one that would hold several pounds of concrete?
Would you be able determine what is causing an alarm to sound on a spacecraft and then resolve the issue? How would you precisely measure out four ounces of liquid using nothing but two cups: one that holds three ounces and one that holds five ounces? About 1,300 middle and high school students from 23 New Orleans-area schools took on these challenges and more Wednesday during the University of New Orleans' celebration of National Engineers Week. UNO's College of Engineering partnered with Core Element and the American Society of Civil Engineers on the event, bringing together a host of partners who provided plenty of hands-on activities to help students engage in engineering-related concepts.

For Newly Named Library Dean Ray Wang, University Libraries are More than a Passing Passion
Ray Wang spent hour upon hour in the library when he was in graduate school.
As a Chinese-born international student pursuing his master's and doctoral degrees at Northern Illinois University in the late 1980s and early 1990s, Wang came to view the university library as a home base of sorts.
When other students packed up and headed home for the holidays, Wang would pack up his book bag and find retreat in the stacks and study spaces of the campus bibliotheca.
"I really formed this affinity for libraries," said Wang, newly named University of New Orleans dean of the library and information services. "They helped me to write papers, find information."
Wang comes to UNO from California State Polytechnic University, where he led its library for nine years. While he began his academic studies in the United States with an intention of returning to China to teach English, Wang's fondness for academic libraries and their unique ability to serve students at all levels quickly began to drive his career.
