As a former student at Monmouth University, one of the places that really sticks out in my mind is the Guggenheim Library. The university is in the final stages of complete overhaul and redesign of the library and it should be ready for when school starts in the fall.
Read the article above for some great historical facts on the building. I offer this simple post for two reasons. First, I think that all college students should find that “place” on campus where you can get some real work done for school. Sometimes that place is your dorm room or your room off-campus where you can close the door and concentrate on your GPA. For me, that place was the Guggenheim Library. I had the opportunity to go into the library a few weeks ago to see some of the renovations and while some of the building was still blocked off, I think that the university did a great job of putting together that special “place” for students to study.
Second, I link the article above to show you that no matter what happens or what “good” takes place at Monmouth University, the locals just won’t have any of it. Go and read the last few lines of the article – welcome to Monmouth University!
