Mentioned in the student newspaper

I love to find the library mentioned in the student newspaper. We were listed 5 times in an article, "Almost 30 reasons to love UR".

  • You dress up to go to Gleason [library], considering you will probably run into more people there than you will anywhere else on campus.
  • You have a straight face when you tell your friends back home that a library is the social hub of the campus.
  • You realize that the graffiti in the stacks is better than PostSecret's could ever be.
  • One of the things on your to-do list before you graduate is doing some promiscuous acts in the stacks.
  • There is always one person in the Gleason cubicle with a bathrobe on, and, yes, he probably lives there.

I love this! When I was in college, the library was just the place where you studied. We didn't have study groups there, we didn't even use it as a place to meet up. While I really liked the library (Milne library at SUNY Geneseo), it was not even on the social radar.
I like that the River Campus libraries can do double duty: academic and social value at once.
