DO BEER PONG AND DRONES MIX? THESE COLLEGE STUDENTS CAN NOW CHECK OUT DRONES FROM THE CAMPUS LIBRARY
ABC News reports that the USF Library has been testing drone flights to record campus activities, including a jazz performance, and will make the remote-controlled camera-toting flyers available to students for projects in disciplines like engineering and environmental science. One staff member cites the usefulness of drones in fields like architecture, where students could investigate the structure of a building from above without having to estimate from drawings
The greatest (and by that I mean largest) of all the Christmas Book Trees, at the University of San Francisco’s Gleeson Library. It is assembled almost entirely with the green-spined National Union Catalog, a bound book catalog that is a relic of librarianship past.
Their 2012 version took 1,500 books, weighs a staggering 4,000 pounds, and is over nine feet tall. It stands beside USF’s Cable Car Book Cart.

Hey there! As classes have already started for Spring 2015, questions are on the rise.
I’m currently a senior in his final semester. I’ll soon stop answering USF questions on my personal blog because I’m graduating. If you have a question after May 2015, please check out AskDons. This page will still be alive, but it will link you to ask USF questions elsewhere.
I’ve been involved with a lot of things while at USF, including:
The Saint Ignatius Institute
Student Housing (I’ve been an RA, a CA, and a member of RHC)
Performing Arts and Social Justice
Office of Admissions
ASUSF Voices (Student choirs)
Student newspaper, the San Francisco Foghorn
Student Leadership and Engagement overall
Studying abroad (London via the BU Internship Program)

Translating science into plain English at the Exploratorium
As California and the nation race to educate more scientists, mathematicians, and creative thinkers, we can’t afford to leave students behind because they weren’t brought up speaking English, says Lynn Rankin, director of the Exploratorium’s Institute for Inquiry.
That’s why USF’s Sarah Capitelli has helped turn the San Francisco exploratorium’s renowned, hands-on science into language lessons for non-English speaking students. | Full story »
