I study at the UGLi almost every night during the week and usually all day on Sunday. The second floor is my favorite study spot on campus, even though there is a lot of talking and socializing. I feel like, if you’re going to be stuck doing homework, you might as well have a little bit of fun and surround yourself with others who are on the same struggle bus. Some of my closest friendships happened through bonding at the library: my “UGLi-friends.” In fact, I even networked at the UGLi and met someone who helped me get a job after I graduate! This is how I see it: when I graduate, I’m not going to remember the nights I studied at home, but the long nights I spent with friends studying our lives away together at the UGLi.
