Bartleby, a new service for students

Bartleby is a student success hub, as part of Barnes & Noble College's ongoing mission to serve all who work to elevate their lives through education. Bartleby's products and services are designed to improve student success and outcomes, offering pathways for learning that fit the schedules and demands of today's student. Our goal with Bartleby is to supplement classroom instruction and enhance student engagement. We want to help students understand how to solve problems, rather than just providing the answer.

Making a difference: 2018-19 Dalai Lama Scholars

Kindness and compassion have been motivating factors for Elisa Tran, a senior in social policy & public service, and Lara Nguyen, a senior in international studies and public health policy, who have set out to make a positive impact at UCI.

As the campus's 2018-19 Dalai Lama Scholars, they are leading this year's third annual OC Make-a-thon, an intensive three-day event that brings together students from multiple disciplines - many of them in engineering - to develop products for people living with disabilities.
