What's your dream study space?
How much time do you spend looking for a power socket?
What's a 24-hour library to you?
Okay, so what?
Students are studying in fundamentally different ways from just a few years ago.
The proliferation wireless internet access, mobile phones, tablets, and laptop computers have completely changed the way students study. We want to know exactly how students study today so that we can make the most accurate and effective argument to the University to provide better purpose-built spaces for students.
Here are some stories:
Meg (Art History & IR)
"And I used the 24 computer labs a lot. I definitely pulled some all nighters in the Irvine building. ... I will say that much as I would like it to, the student mind doesn't work on a 9-5 schedule. Some times the most brilliant ideas will come to you at strange hours."
Ondrej (Int'l Relations)
"I work best until about 1am or midnight: after that, it's not my best work. But I also don't like the library during the day. I really like the library after 7/8pm when it's not too busy."
"I tend to work better in the afternoon/evening, usually because I sleep late, which can lead to becoming semi-nocturnal during exam time. I get too distracted working in places where there are lots of people, so I normally work in my room where the only distractions are the Internet and Disney music!"
