New campus location offers quiet study room

The Crusader/Katie Auchenbach
STOP! STUDY TIME - The Study is a new place in the Center for Academic Achievement for everyone to use.
Tired of trying to get work done in a loud residence hall? Not able to reserve a study room in the library? Sick of attempting to study in Mellon Lounge? Fear not-there is a solution.

The Study, proposed by the Center for Academic Achievement, is a quiet space that offers coffee, tea, cocoa and a place to get work done. Located on the second floor of Fisher Room 249, it is open every weekday morning from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.

"The Study is basically taking open study time and putting a name on it," Director of the Center for Academic Achievement James Black said. "You can just come in and do your homework in a quiet environment. There will be staff available to help, but you don't necessarily need help to come in. It's very accommodating. We're interested to see what students want."

Black's hope is that students will come and take advantage of the space and time that The Study offers.

"It's pretty straightforward," Black said. "I know there is a rush for students to get work done. But here you can go over the processes and actually take time to look at your work and realize that you've learned something. That can be more important than just a grade."

The Center for Academic Achievement is available to assist students. The Writing Center is open Monday through Thursday from 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. The Math Center is also open Monday through Thursday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Students can reach the center by calling (570) 372-4412 or checking their site at
