Where Are You From? by Vicky Ludas Orlofsky (email@example.com)
To mark the beginning of the new school year, the Library debuted two maps at the Open House on September 2. One a world map and one a map of New Jersey, they have been on display since last week so members of the Stevens community can mark their home region. Both maps have been getting a lot of attention, so much so that we ran out of map pins and have been using thumbtacks!

It’s been fascinating to see where the Stevens community -- primarily students, but also staff and faculty -- come from. Given the popularity of Stevens among New Jersey residents, we knew we’d better include a map specifically of the Garden State, but it appears that next year, we should also include maps of China and India, as those countries are greatly represented by our graduate students.

Have you stuck in a pin yet? Stop by and show everyone where you’re from! The maps will be on display through the month of September in the Great Hall.
