Pre-AP American History students recently spent a day at Hendrix College seeing different aspects of campus life and learning.
The Conway Junior High students made the most of their campus visit. They toured the campus, the library, and then students got to hear from different professors about the importance of research in their jobs as professors, and in life in general.
Students got to see the elephant skeleton in DW Reynolds, the pendulum in MC Reynolds, the Student Life Center, a Cat Colony also known as the “Cat Pit”, and classrooms and science labs Hendrix offers their students.
The library staff led students through and showed them where resources were, gave them a form to check out books, showed them how to use the catalogue to search the books and online resources, and offered to help the students personally find sources for their topics.
"The students seemed to really enjoy themselves," said Kevin DeStefano, CJHS History Teacher, "Many came away thinking about college in a new way."
