The fall semester is at full speed as busy Bobcats plan their days, store their data, stay hydrated, and do their course readings…while losing appointment notebooks, thumb drives, water bottles, and books.

Here were 18 items seen in the Ladd Library Lost & Found on Sept. 25:

  • Dane-Elec 4-gigabyte flash drive
  • Staedtler Mars plastic eraser
  • Tote bag with the logo of Analysis Group (a consulting firm founded by Bruce Stangle ’70) filled with handouts from a recent Purposeful Work information session
  • Single black sock
  • Spigen iPhone 11 case
