A Good Place to Be

So I’m sitting in the library pondering over what to write for this blog entry. I then come to the realization that I am surrounded by an environment in which all prospective Muskies should know about! The library on campus is pretty hip and it’s the probably the best “hang-out” spot for students on a week day afternoon, or late night during finals week.

When most students think about a library as being a fun, relaxing space, they sort of chuckle and move on from the perceived joke. However, our library is different from the mainstream house of books:

First of all, EVERYONE is at the library in the afternoon, but don’t let this bother you – it’s still a silent, inspiring environment, minus the one obnoxious student on his cell phone (you may encounter this situation once or twice). Second, our library has a popcorn machine! Third, on finals week, they serve you free coffee, tea, and snacks galore! Fourth, they have several racks of magazines and journals for you to enjoy – anything from the TIMES to scholarly psychology journals. Fifth, they offer student jobs if you are interested in making some extra income!

Finally, they have new wide screen computers, comfy chairs, workshops, author talks, a Facebook page, art work, super friendly librarians ..oh, and then there are plenty of books (academic and popular), both on the shelves and online for your reading pleasure!
