The art of appreciation


Cookies, cheese bites, and 20-percent-off coupons greeted University employees Thursday and Friday at the U of C bookstore’s Faculty and Staff Appreciation Days. Held three or four times a year, the event this time coincides with Friday’s faculty book-order deadline for autumn quarter. Staff members stopped by a front table decked with free treats to chat with bookstore workers, pick up flyers on store services ranging from dissertation binding to catering, and score instant wins from a prize bucket. The most common jackpot giveaway? A free cup of coffee or tea from the café.
