Friday Film: A Chump at Oxford

Starring Stan Laurel, Oliver Hardy, Forrester Harvey, Wilfred Lucas.

After foiling a bank robbery, Laurel and Hardy ask for a first-class education as their reward. Laurel’s tour-de-force portrayal of the long-lost Lord Paddington at Oxford University is a classic example of the extraordinary range of this superb comedian. This is the full-length European version not released in the United States.


7:00 pm in the auditorium

Library Building: Signs & Flyers

Every year we remove hundreds of examples of "patron driven signage" from the building. This time of year things often pick up as students look for things to do that are more interesting than studying.

If you see unapproved signs or flyers feel free to take them down. This helps us reduce clutter and at the same time we may be helping some students excel at school since they won't be getting any dates via flyers in the library.

If you find an outstanding example feel free to share it.
