I've Enjoyed My Time Here at Lehman

I've enjoyed my time at here at Lehman College.  When transferring from Bronx Community College, Lehman was my first choice and I've not even come close to regretting it. The teachers here have been great - several of them being very capable and focused on making the material understandable to all students.  One of them even helped me get the job I have today, which I enjoy due to the exposure to new technologies that I've never seen before.  I've enjoyed the experiences I've been acquiring...

QR Codes in the Library stacks

Have you noticed barcode lookalike squares in the subway or in print magazine ads? 

Ever wondered what it is? It's a QR code, which is short for Quick Response code. To read a QR code, you need a smartphone like an iPhone, Android, or Blackberry with an installed QR reader.

Where can I get more experience?

Students at the Multimedia Center ask me all the time "where can I get more experience in video/photo production?" and it's a great question.  The answer I always give is.... "everywhere."  A friend once told me that "every moment is learning moment" and I believe that applies to everyone. Whether you're shooting video or photos on your iPhone or working as an assistant to a professional there is always something you can take away.
