Description

The Kirkwood Community College library (along with Tutoring Services) has held an Exam Cram event for students each semester since the fall of 2014. It is an idea we borrowed from other academic libraries in Iowa. However, over the years, it has evolved into an event that has included more and more of our college's departments and services to make it a community event. It has included Counseling Services, Campus Health, U. S. Bank on-campus branch, the Cafe, Student Life, Writing Center, the Campus Book and Computer store, the Veterinary Technology program, the Nursing program and Agriculture/Horticulture program. This session will share what we have done to create an event enjoyed by students and provided ownership to many at Kirkwood.
