Welcome back, Ospreys! As the Spring semester officially kicks off its first day of classes, check out these exciting events throughout the week.

On Monday, January 6, get your grub on with some welcome-back-snacks in the library on the first floor. Simply visit the Welcome Desk between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. Fancy some trivia in exchange for doughnuts? Check out the Military Veterans Resource Center (building 2, RM 1100) to score some gourmet doughnuts from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. From 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., you can sample food, music, and UNF’s various resources for getting more involved on campus. Be sure to bring your Osprey 1Card.

On Tuesday, January 7, hit up the library again for some snacks from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. again and get philosophical with coffee in building 2, RM 1400 from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. Start 2020 off with a handmade calendar from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the Osprey Plaza.

On Wednesday, January 8, fill the empty void of your stomach with MORE snacks from the library from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. and then check out the UNF Women’s Center’s annual showcase, “Celebration of Women in the Arts,” from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the Robinson Theatre.
