Student Art by Scott Hempleman

Spring semester the Clermont College Library is pleased to exhibit the art of Scott Hempleman.  Scott’s colorful paintings stem from years of drawing fun, imaginative cartoons. Encouraged by his grandfather as well as art teachers at Clermont College, Scott’s vibrant works display a study in color relationship and contrast.

Come check out Scott Hempleman’s work in the library’s Student Art Spotlight through spring 2018.  As always, we thank Fine Arts faculty Kelly Frigard and Kim Taylor for their dedicated support of the Student Art Spotlight since 2015.

Games at the Clermont College Library

Free time between classes? Need to relax for a bit? Stop by the Clermont College Library.

We’ve set up a game table, where you can play Jenga, Battleship, or Connect Four.

Playing games helps decrease stress and can improve critical thinking. Spending time having fun may be the boost needed to get back to that research paper or clear your mind to study for a test.

As the semester winds down, take a half-an-hour and enjoy some healthy competition.

Second Floor Selfies at Clermont

Clermont College Library is sponsoring a passive program to direct attention to the second floor of the library. Our second floor is the only quiet study space on campus. And we want students to know about it. Since selfies have become a fun part of society, we’re asking students to visit Clermont College library’s second floor, snap a selfie, then email the photo to penny.mcginnis@uc.edu between October 5-29. We’ll share them on Twitter and Facebook.

A random drawing will determine which student wins a $25 Amazon gift card.

We also welcome administration, faculty and staff to send a photo or post one on Twitter @ucclermontlib. We are using the #SecondFloorSelfie tag on Twitter. Check it out!
