HPU librarians conduct workshop for Le Jardin Academy students

HPU librarians Elizabeth Torres and Farris Sanders taught local high school students from Le Jardin Academy how to conduct academic level research in a special workshop on Tuesday, Feb. 9 at HPU's Downtown campus. Thirty-one International Baccalaureate Diploma Program students used HPU Libraries’ resources to find articles for their “extended essays.”

According to Le Jardin Academy's Diploma Program Coordinator, Christine Keogh:  "The research presentation...was engaging and informative...We appreciate all of the individual help you were able to provide to our students. They have all walked away with a better understanding of their topic."

Also visiting with the group was Le Jardin Academy’s Director of College Counseling and HPU alumnus, Scott Liedtke (BA '96, MA '98).  After their session, the visiting students were given a campus tour of Aloha Tower Marketplace and spoke with HPU Admissions representatives. Le Jardin Academy hopes to make this an annual visit.
