(Nov 22/08) Given I pay almost $15,000 a year in tuition, do you think that you could provide somewhere to study on a Saturday night?
The Learning commons at Mills is a disgrace. Food everywhere, cellphones ringing, dudes playing music from their laptops-
this is a joke. I get to hear all about some freshmans Friday night instead of getting through my assignments, and now I pay
$5 parking for the privilege.
It is inexcusable that a major research university has nowhere to get work done on a Saturday night.
Library response: Thanks for your comment. We will follow up with the security guard who is on duty in the Learning Commons on Saturday night to make sure he/she understands that one of their responsibilities is to monitor the noise in this room, including asking people to use headphones when listening to music and other audio files on their laptops. We will also look into getting additional garbage receptacles placed in this room. Unfortunately there is no other library space available to study in in the libraries on Saturday nights. (Dec 15/08)
