Busy Bees?

All work and no play make Jack a dull boy is how the saying goes. I am starting to think it’s true in a way with midterm season in full swing. The rush to complete homework, deadlines, assignments, etc. is becoming too overwhelming to put into words. I felt like I entered a new dimension when I first visited Leavey library, because I was welcomed by silence and these huge array of people all buried in their books, busy in conversations, and typing away humongous lines of code.

I started admiring the library (of course when you have to study, everything else in the world intrigues you except that) and I realized the contrasts between different libraries around USC. I visited the Doheny Library to meet with the HR department and wow I felt like I was walking into a Hogwarts library or so. The beautiful wooden finishes, the antique feel to the whole place, the whole setting, and the elevators which open up to one side gave me the impression that I was inside a mansion and not just any building, it was literally breathtaking. Well since I already visited two, I decided why not check out the philosophy library and see if it outdoes Doheny and let me tell you if you’ve not gone there then you’re definitely missing out. The collection of books, the fire-place, the wooden interiors, the imprinted tiles will leave you in awe and again this place has an antique feel to it. It is also quieter than Leavey and Doheny as it is strategically placed towards one end of the campus and is frequented less by students, and I have no idea why!

The Seaver Science and Engineering library is the location I picked out to write this article, I mean why not? The space is a little limited but it is a compact and a nice space to complete your work or even to sit in and read in peace. If you’re near  Olin hall  it’s just a 3 min walk away and you don’t have to walk to the other end of campus so that’s an advantage. Anyway, I finally think I should get back to studying, all the best on your midterms guys!
