First Generation students (Trailblazers) are being celebrated at Brock University this week. As over 25% of our student population is first in their family to attend post-secondary, they are changing the course of their own lives and also the lives of generations to follow.
In honour of these students, a new display in the Library and Learning Commons features the profiles of famous “First Gens.” From Shaquille O’Neal and Michelle Obama to Roberta Jamieson and Mahatma Gandhi, there is a Trailblazer story to inspire you.
On your next trip to the Library and Learning Commons, spare some time to view the current display of artifacts by First Nations, Métis and Inuit craftspeople. Learn the importance of sage, sweet grass, cedar and tobacco to indigenous cultures. View intricate bead work, sewing, weaving and more.

The Department of Classics and The Library Makerspace recently collaborated on an experiential learning project and all are invited to view the results. Replicas of Alexander the Great, the Pharaoh Hetshepsut, and the Venus of Willendorf are on display this week at the Thistle entrance to the Library.
The works came about as a result of Carrie Murray, Tabitha Lewis, and Jonathan Younker’s work to create a project that would bring technology into the classroom. Students in CLAS 2P32 – Introduction to Archaeology, researched and wrote proposals to choose artifacts held in major museums for 3D printing. The chosen artifacts were printed in class this week.
Following the exhibit, the artifacts will be moved to a display case in the Cypriote Museum, Department of Classics, and they will be used in upcoming courses.
Are you interested in learning more about emerging technology? Check out the Library Makerspace in ST211 during Monday to Friday drop-in hours (10 am – 4 pm). Or, take in one of their free workshops listed on Experience BU.
