The Honors Center Upstairs Study Space will be Closed Starting December 3

The Honors Center is getting a facelift. The college is making some upgrades to the upstairs space in the Honors Center, to make it a brighter and more welcoming spot to study. The downside: we have to shut down the space while they work.

This means the second floor of the Honors Center will be unavailable for student use beginning Saturday, December 3.

We realize taking the study space offline during finals is less than ideal, but the timeline was our best option to get most of the work completed during winter break.

If you’re looking for a spot to study, we’ve always found our friends in Addlestone Library to be incredibly accommodating.
