  7. This is my 1st semester @IIT & @GalvinLibrary. Galvin is just so awesome place to study. I always use quite section room or desk to study. The whiteboard facility is so adorable that I used to do my all algorithms tree on it and post a Homework. I saved paper to much extent. and I’m in love with Galvin !

  9. I like how the library seems in a secluded spot and is very quiet to study. For someone like me who suffers from anxiety, I need peace and quiet or I cannot even finish reading one line in a book. It is important for me to be able to concentrate.

  12. This is amazing! I spent most of my time in the library and also serve as a member of student advocate of Galvin Library. It provides perfect environments for both studying alone and discussing in a group! I REALLY LOVE the new beta library website at gl.iit.edu. They made a lot of improvement for the convenience of users! #GalvinLibrary

  13. The Galvin Library has a studious environment. Whether you prefer to study in the quiet section or in the nonquiet section, the library can accommodate to your needs.
    I find that being able to study and colloborate with a group of friends is a great way to review for finals. So, I plan on using the library to study for my finals.
    Another great aspect about the library, especially for commuters, is the fact that the library offers laptop rentals. So, if you don’t feel like carrying your laptop to school, you can always rent a laptop from the library.
