Three words that come to my mind when I think of the Library: Starbucks, Homework and Socializing. I am currently sitting here drinking a Caramel Macchiato, doing my homework with my bro while listening to John Mayer. If that is not quality, I do not know what is. Sacred Grounds, which is the Starbucks coffee shop on campus, is located on the main floor of the White Library . What would a library be without coffee? Not to mention they make some killer drinks. I wish I could afford coffee everyday. But for today anyways, I will enjoy the treat of a free coffee coupon.
It is ironic that I often come to the library to do homework and end up spending more time socializing than doing my work. I am not sure exactly why this place has become such a hub for student interaction—probably because the average SAU student spends a good deal of time here doing homework and it is just easier to socialize here than leave to go somewhere else. That is not saying that no homework gets done here, because I definitely do that as well, but I am just not always productive with my time.
Note that it is also a great place to hang out with that special guy or girl without making it a big deal because you are just doing “homework.” I will admit I have been guilty of coming to the library purely to hang out with females, but that is another story….. Regardless, this is one of my favorite places on campus and I spend a lot of time here. It is the place to be during the day, which sounds weird, but it is the truth.
