Assignment planner written by Monique Mery

Have you ever been so overwhelmed with an assignment that you have no clue where to start? I know I have, countless times, but the Assignment Planner is here to save us. Before I go on to explain the wonders of the Assignment Planner, let me introduce myself!  My name is Monique Mery, I’m in my 4A of Biomedical Sciences (it’s so scary that I’m almost done !!) and this is my third term being a Library Ambassador and I’m just as excited as I was back in my first term of this position!

Hello Everyone,

My name is Maryam, I am in my 4th year of Kinesiology, and I am super excited to work with the Library as an Ambassador, for yet another term! I have learned about so many library and general campus resources, and my position has allowed me to hone my interpersonal and leadership skills through many projects and experiences I was fortunate to take part in as an Ambassador!
