WCSU Library Collection is ready for checkout!

The Working Class Student Union is excited to announce that we have recieved our first shipment of books and DVDs for our library collection. Students can stop into the WCSU office, #3153 SAC, to review our selection and check out materials.

I found Without A Net to be a particularly wonderful book. The various essays are a great way to internalize the many faces of working class backgrounds and the diversity of voices is a nice change of pace from academic discussions.
