Hundreds of first year students gathered outside the south side of the Karrmann Library on Sunday evening of Labor Day weekend to witness the dropping of a wide variety of balls from the third floor balcony. Library Director Zora Sampson welcomed the students — the UW-Platteville Class of 2015!
With even safety lighting temporarily extinguished, strobe lights caught the descent of beach and super balls in a fun display of color and motion.
After the ball drop, students were welcomed inside their university library for refreshments and games.

Zetkin, Clara, the pioneer feminist activist
Considered an "ambitious survey of the world of politics at the beginning of the 21st Century", the Encyclopedia of Political Science offers more than 1,500 signed essays by contributors from forty countries. Merriam Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary defines politics as the quest for good government, a pursuit that has engaged humans from the time they formed groups and communities. The discussion continues—who has power and how should it be used—throughout the lengthy articles, complete with extensive bibliographies for further reading.
