Quiet & Convenient Student Study Space Available


Student study space will remain a priority at
the Levin College of Law until construction is
complete and the library returns to its greatly
expanded and renovated facilities. The Office of
Student Affairs has identified the following options
for students to study in a quiet, convenient and safe
environment:
* Legal Information Center Annex in Butler Plaza.
Plentiful, comfortable, quiet study space, computer
workstations and plenty of free parking. No food or
drink (unless in a securely lidded container) allowed.
* Classrooms. Classrooms are available during posted
times. The schedule is subject to change, and a cur-
rent version is posted online on the Student Affairs
Web site (www.law.ufl.edulstudents/) and on the
bulletin board outside the Office of Student Affairs.
Please remember to take care of the facilities, and
respect the university's "no food or drink" policy.
* Cafeteria in Bruton-Geer Hall. Food and drinks per-
mitted. Please clean up when you are finished, and
maintain an atmosphere of quiet individual study.
* Student Lounge. Study groups or other gatherings are
encouraged to use this area.
* Skylight Lounge outside Career Services. Though this
area is a heavy traffic area with some noise, it is a
convenient study spot. Additional study spaces are
planned for the near future.
* Brick corridor outside Media Center. Another heavily
traveled area, with some noise. The chairs and bench-
es are being replaced with chair/desk units andlor
tables and chairs.
* Baughman Center at Lake Alice. A scenic and nearby
retreat for quiet study inside or out. No food or
drinks allowed. From the law school, go south on
Village Drive, then west on Museum Road. (If you
drive, obtain a parking permit from the center office.)
More information is online at http://iml.jou.ufl.edul
projects/Spring04/Wallace/Baughman.htm.

continuing to pursue others."
