Some Like It Quiet
from Inside Higher Ed
Not everyone likes to study while listening to their neighbor's jazz music in one ear and the party next door in the other. So for those who prefer physics problem sets to parties — or at least want the option of studying on a Saturday night — universities designate certain residence halls or floors "quiet." "Even though we offer many lounges and many spaces on campus where they can study, I think many students are most comfortable studying in their own environment," said Bridget Reeland, assistant director for residential life at Illinois State University, where about 1,400 of the 6,000 housing spots available are designated as quiet.
