    Everyone instinctively stares you down with a scowl as you walk through- go to the first or fourth floors to avoid feeling like you're not supposed to be there.

    iPads can be rented out now. Also Univ Ave facing seats in 3rd and 4th are Awesome. Don't go to the grad floor without a Hoodie

    If you check out the net books at Library West, please make sure to save your work to a flash drive or email. Do this numerous times.

    If you want to study quietly without being bothered, and away from a bunch of people, try first floor behind the bookshelves

    If you think of the first floor stacks as your secret, underground lair you'll do just fine.

    Take a shit before you arrive. Each men's restroom has one stall and two urinals and the wait time - yes, even for men - can be unreliable.

    The ground floor is probably the most productive non grad student floor, and least occupied!

    Avoid the bitchy staff who don't let you have food in your bag. Maybe if I come smelling like food they'll try to kick me out too?
