We agree, quiet is important (see Too Loud)! Try visiting the LRC during off-peak hours. You may also check out the small lounge areas around campus.

Other Comments More Computers
Larger Space Quiet Study Space
Themes (and our responses): More computers The LRC has 18 computers. A2103 is an open access lab.
Too Loud Your peers may become disruptive. To address this: Staff monitor and address noise as needed We have policies in place regarding disruptive practices, such as cell phone use Free earplugs are available at the Service desk Please feel free to respectfully ask others to lower their voices
(and our responses or explanations): Blinds for windows – blinds needed throughout the campus are under review by the college Longer meeting room time slots – 2-hour maximum slots allow meeting room use to be fair to as many students as possible, and are consistent with practices at Doon Plugs for Study Cubicles – many electrical outlets are available under the counter seating; in future if we move the study carrels, we will request outlets Printers closer to computers – the printer is located in the Copier Room to reduce noise Better positioning of computer towers – we will ask ITS to review this situation More study rooms – we will keep this in mind as the campus grows; other options include unoccupied classrooms, Room A3101, and small lounge areas about campus
We appreciate your suggestions. Thanks for your patience as we continue to improve.
