Wherever you choose to attend college, you'll no doubt spend a lot of your time in the library. That's why it's a prime spot to remember on campus visits, and something you should ask students about whenever you have the chance. What you're looking for: great work spaces, nice views, long hours and let's be honest...cozy couches don't hurt! Here's what a few Siena students love about Standish Library.
"My favorite spot to study in the library is on the main floor at a four-person table with my friends, so we can catch up and occasionally crack a joke while also being together getting our work done! I am grateful that the library provides such an easy way of printing, copying, scanning and obtaining books (that may not even be available at Siena) through the InterLibrary Loan service and ConnectNY." - Valerie Zeffiro '16
"I love studying by the windows and watching the baseball team play!" - Jamie Horrigan '16
"My favorite place to study is on the upper level (also the quiet floor) on the couches that look out onto the quad. I like this spot because the couches are comfy, when the sun hits them they become toasty warm and when I need a study break I can look out onto the quad and enjoy what it has to offer, like the people-watching or the sunset." - Emily Whitcomb '18
*Fun fact: The Million Dollar View overlooks the baseball field, which is why the window is made of shatterproof glass. It was a Senior Class Gift in 1998! Want to come see it in person? Visit us soon.
