#StudyByStyle Highlight No. 4

Lower Level: Quiet and Understated

If you like to study in quiet and prefer an area that is not used by many, the Lower Level of Love South might be the right study spot for you! There is minimal seating both in the stacks and in the hallways, as few people study in the lower level. Take the elevator or locate the doors to the lower level staircase to find your way to this spot.
