Shhhhhh …. !!! The Library Added a QUIET Room!

 


Need a QUIET place to study?

The Library Has It!


 

You need to review for your upcoming Econ quiz.  Or maybe you’re working on that English paper that’s due next week.  Study at home, with all those people demanding your time and attention?  Nope.  At the dorm, with everyone involved in their own lives?  Impossible!

The tables in the Atrium have plenty of light from the 3 story windows, and that lovely pastoral view of the Flint river and U-M Flint, Andrea Yingervast open lawns …

So relaxing.

It’s a great place to study in peace and quiet.

Our thanks go to this group of students studying diligently at a table in the library for permission to use their image. UM-Flint has the greatest students!

Unfortunately, about a hundred other students had the same idea.

And with the incredible acoustics in the Atrium, the subtle background sounds start gnawing on your nerves.

Then a large group comes in and sits at the table next to you.  And they start whispering.  It’s not that bad.  You can ignore them and immerse yourself in studying.

You are about ready to explode!

All you need is a room where you can get some peace and quiet and get your work done.  Why can’t that place be the library?!!!

What you need is a quiet study room.

And Thompson Library has it.
