New Student Orientation


Every floor has individual study spots for you to sit down, plug in, and get to work. 

  • The 5th floor has a beautiful view of Willow Path and the Chobani Cafe.
  • The 4th floor and 2nd floor have individual study carrels and comfy chairs to read in during the winter months. These are quiet zones and quite popular during finals week.
  • The 3rd floor has a sun-soaked (when it's shining) study area with tables and chairs. This is a social zone. 
  • The 1st floor exists. It has no windows. Can you find it?

These spots are first-come, first-served, but there is plenty of room for everyone! 

Don't feel like walking down the the Hill in February? The George R. Cooley Science Library in McGregory Hall is a cozy little spot for you to curl up with a copy of Nature.

Check out laptops, phone chargers, headphones, and more technology from the ITS Help Desk on the 3rd floor. All you need is your student ID.
