If you want to study with a few friends or just need a surface to spread out your project, try one of the 3 new study booths with room to comfortably seat a small group.  They have a comfy vibe reminiscent of a vintage soda shop booth, but with modern conveniences like pull out cushions that provide excellent lumbar support for long-haul study sessions.


Both of these areas are conveniently located on Bracken 1West, just behind the Writing Center@Bracken.  Bonus:  You’ll be just steps away from personal research and writing assistance.
