    My favorite place to study is the loft in upper Olmsted! It has comfy couches and several tables! It is pretty quiet as well! It also has a wonderful view of campus!

    If the building is warm and you're looking for a cool, quiet place to study, check out the basement! Much cooler than the main floor and usually empty.

    The coffee shop area makes for a great meet-up spot on campus. If it's crowded, move to the West side. Great for group projects.

    If you like semi-quiet places to work, normally a coffee shop would seem like a good idea but Olmsted coffee shop is the opposite of quiet. One of the machines is extremely screechy and very annoying

    If you like lots of espresso in your coffee, you'll enjoy the coffee shop's Green Mountain Coffee. If not, head to Starbucks.

    There is usually something going on here every weekend, whether it be a concert or speaker. Pay attention to the signs posted!

    Rumor has it that Olmsted was designed to look like a bulldog. Look at the building from the outside and let us know if you see the similarity.

    If you need a quiet place to study and/or nap, head up to the UPPER UPPER Olmsted :)
