Longer Hours & Quiet Place to Study Needed
I find the hours of the library very incompatible with students who have a “busy” schedule. As a full time student with three jobs I don’t feel as if I am getting an adequate amount of time in the library. I have classes all day and work late on weekdays leaving little or NO time in the library because it closes before mid-night. We are told to be studying 3 hours for every 1 hour of lecture; how are students expected to study when their class goes until 4pm on Friday, and the library closes at 5:45pm? Also, students have exams on Mondays! We are told not to “cram” for exams, but how can we get a sufficient amount of studying done if there is no where to study? On Saturdays I work 10:30am-7pm which leaves me with NO possible library time. The library is open for less than 7 hours on Saturdays!! As some may suggest to study at home, I am letting you know that is not possible to study at my house with 7 roommates on a Saturday night. Students NEED a quiet place to study. I am not the only one getting “kicked-out” at close, and I am not the only one who would like more hours. I think there should be “after hours” where everything is locked up, and there is only access to the 1st floor (maybe even 2nd floor). There doesn’t even have to be staff available – I am only asking for a quite place to study.
