Visit the New L-11 Testing Center!

August 25th, 2014 in Homepage

Students, faculty and staff are welcome to visit and study in the new L-11 Testing Center!

A recently completed renovation on the 11th floor of the Alumni Medical Library now provides a state-of-the-art, 220 seat testing center http://medlib.bu.edu/computing/l11testingcenter.php

The Testing Center is among the first of its kind, and will serve to both facilitate the administration of exams while at the same time enhance the quality of study space for BU medical campus students.

 

Renovations include a new ceiling with improved sound-proofing qualities, energy-efficient lighting, new carpeting and flooring, newly painted walls, new chairs and tables with power outlets at every seat, and club seating and cube tables in the hallway outside the floor-to-ceiling glass walls of the testing center.  The heating and air conditioning system was upgraded, and a more powerful wireless system is provided throughout the testing center, as well as some wired network connections.

 

The testing center is equipped with a video monitoring system and audio system for proctor announcements.  The testing center serves a dual-purpose as student study space when not reserved for exams.

 

Medical Library Computing & Systems offices are located in L-1109, and staff will provide on-site technical support for student laptops and laptop loaners during exams.  A new state-of-the-art computer classroom with 26 PCs will also serve as a public computing lab when classes and exams are not scheduled.  A Coffee/Vending Lounge includes additional club seating, group study tables, PC’s, a scanner and print release station and is available for use when exams are not scheduled.  The elevator lobby was renovated and a new LCD monitor and signage have been installed throughout the floor.

 

Three elevators, including the express elevator, have been programmed to stop on L-11, and emergency stairwell access to L-11 is also available Monday – Friday 7:00 am – 7:00 pm.

2014 Fall Registration

Registration for fall is ongoing  for continuing students.  Please see the summer registration page.

Scholars Day 4/15/14

February 26th, 2014 in General News, Research, test

Scholars Day 2014 will take place on Tuesday, April 15th in the George Sherman Union with abstract submissions due 4/6.  

The abstract submission form for Scholars Day 2014 will be available between March 17-31 (starting and ending at noon on those dates) at http://www.bu.edu/provost/scholars-day-2014/.  Advisors will be asked to approve student abstracts by Sunday, April 6th.  Students whose abstracts are not approved by the deadline will not have a designated location at the event.

All graduate students in a degree-granting program at Boston University who are also engaged in research in any area of study are invited to participate. Postdoctoral researchers are also welcome, but are not eligible for awards.

This event is intended to honor and celebrate research by our graduate students and has been held at Boston University for nearly two decades. Originally, the event focused on science and engineering research, but was expanded in recent years to include the arts, humanities, and social sciences.  Over time, the number and quality of presentations has grown enormously, as has the number of awards presented by schools, college, centers and institutes.  The judging forms used by schools and colleges provide feedback to students from faculty reviewing the work.

This year, we hope to further encourage submissions from the arts and humanities by including panels, the conventional format for presenting research in these disciplines.  Panels will be built around scholarly areas that emerge from the abstracts submitted.

Those students presenting posters will be asked to set up beginning at 9:30 a.m.  Poster judging will take place between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.  Please plan to be present during as much of this time as possible, as you may need to assist the judges in their understanding of your work.  Panel judging will take place during the sessions themselves, which will be scheduled in advance.

If you are a graduate student or post-doc, we hope you will consider participating (Post-docs are not eligible for awards).  If you are a member of the faculty, we hope you will consider volunteering to judge and provide feedback, encouraging your graduate students to become involved, and persuading your undergraduate students to attend.
