Remembering Dr. Martin Luther King, 1929-1968.


The Jess Parrish Library (Union Campus) elevator is being replaced. During this period, two options exist to access the second floor for the Academic Support Center or the Group Study Rooms. Use the stairs or the elevator outside the library and follow the signs to enter from a study room. The noise and dust may be an issue, so we will open the computer lab or offer a group study room. We apologize for the inconvenience. You can contact us at (901) 333-5135 if questions arise.
