Join us for the opening of Hodges Library’s new Graduate Commons on Friday, September 20. A ribbon-cutting ceremony will begin at 3:30 p.m. in the first-floor galleria. All are welcome. Refreshments will be served.
The new commons — just for graduate students — offers ready access to technology and a quiet space for research. The Graduate Commons is furnished with adjustable-height desks, ergonomic chairs, and lounge areas with sofas—features to ease a workday that can include extended periods of time working on dissertations or analyzing data. The new space supports scholarly work by providing computers with powerful processors and dual monitors, specialized software, small-group rooms, and a large presentation room that can host a dissertation defense. There are even small amenities such as a phone charging station and a bank of lockers. Grad students just need to swipe their VolCards to gain access to the new space located in 131 Hodges Library.
Join us on September 20. This is your chance to explore the lovely new space that is normally the exclusive domain of our hard-working graduate students.
