The renovated Learning Center, located in the A.C. Buehler Library, opened to students at the beginning of the spring semester.
During the fall, part of the library was closed off due to the construction, and there were complaints about the loud noises that were ongoing at the time.
The Learning Center sports white board walls, tutoring stations, and a large seating area for students to study. The library renovation also includes a new fishbowl computer classroom, as well as the addition of the A.C. Buehler Cafe serving Starbucks, making it the second location on campus to do so.
The area provides a more open space for students to study compared to the old learning center in the Frick Center that was tucked away in a corner.
“It is definitely more open to the students; it is more visible to the students and since it is in the library it is more accessible to the students” said Margarete Ishizaka, employee of the Learning Center.
