    If you need to study at night with a computer,go to the second floor after 9 p.m, it's more quiet than the first one. It's also good having starbucks nearby to get snacks and coffee for late study.

    The first, second and third floor have been renovated. Looks nice, but if your looking for a really quiet place to study basement all the way to the back is the best spot to go.

    The second floor used to be cool, and now they remodeled it. I'm sure it looks good in brochures and on tours for prospective students- but it's function is honestly a joke. They need more tables.

    Avoid the front of the library because series there are these guys who like to preach all kids of different beliefs and it can get pretty unholy of there are two that have disagreements!

    If you donate antique weapons, make sure they're demilitarized. Nobody wants explosives in Special Collections, as they can reduce the lifespan of fragile things such as incunabula and archivists.

    I you want to talk in the library, do it on the 1st floor. Do not take your baby mama drama phone calls on the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th floor. It's finals week give me a fucking break!

    Never come here without headphones or earplugs, it's usually the best place for people with 0 interest in studying to scream about their recent hook ups.

    I would just avoid the first floor all together if you're interested in actual studying. Find your nook in the upper levels and feel free to tell cell phone users and other inconsiderate ppl to STFU.
