Need cultural credits? There are now opportunities to get them virtually! Two cultural credit presentations are now available to students courtesy of the library. To receive cultural credit for these presentations, you’ll watch a video and take a quiz, which you have to pass with at least 70% to receive cultural credit for the presentation. All undergraduates are already enrolled in the library’s Blackboard Course.
