Each month we have one or more puzzles at the circulation desk. They give students a challenge to keep their minds and hands busy while waiting for books and laptops to be checked out. This month's puzzle is an especially difficult one - a wooden box to construct from numerous tiny pieces. It's been done, though, proving that perseverance does pay off. This student decided she would figure it out and succeeded. Perseverance paid off for many students on campus this week as grades for the first quarter were handed out. Congratulations to our puzzle solvers and to everyone who decides to make good things happen in their lives.
