Your generosity provides new group study space for students
Students' success is your success
Thanks to you, (from left) Meghan Brill, Meaghan Curtin, Arielle Bareket and Casey Smith were among the first students to use the new group study rooms at the Science Library on Dec. 15, 2014.
Binghamton University transformed five rooms on the first floor of the Science Library
into much-needed group study
rooms, giving students additional space to collaborate.
The rooms were formerly used as office space, storage space and to house scanning and copying machines. They were freshly painted and equipped with new furniture and glass boards. An existing group study room on the ground floor received similar upgrades.
The project — completed before finals week in December — was made possible thanks
to donor support to the
Binghamton Fund for the University Libraries.
"We wanted to provide spaces for students to help with their
learning and studying," says Nicola Chanecka '03, assistant to the dean of libraries. "They had a need for group study space, where they can collaborate and don't have to be as quiet."
Each room can easily accommodate 10 people.
"This is putting donor support to good use," Chanecka says.
"Students are already thanking us for creating these spaces."
