Meet Ashley Abendschein, the Monroe Library’s Friend of the Month! This program recognizes students who frequently borrow a variety of library materials.
Tell us about yourself: I’m from Texas, near Austin. I came to Loyola to play volleyball, but then I got injured. Since then, I’ve had time for other things and I’ve become more involved. I chose Loyola because of its small-school atmosphere and its strong academics. I’m a senior and my major is Marketing.
How do you use the library? I’m constantly borrowing laptops right now because mine is getting repaired. I check out group study room keys and on the weekend, I check out DVDs.
How can the library help further student success? It took me a while to realize what the library offers. As a freshman, you kind of have to step out of your comfort zone to learn what available to you. Lots of students don’t realize the extent of the resources available to them in the library, even some seniors!
Thanks for using the library, Ashley!
