An incident occurred in the library this past Saturday involving one our study rooms. A student was studying in a room on the second mezzanine and left to have lunch. When she returned to the study room, she found a note.
The note contained expletives and accused her of being a “(study)room stealing slime”. I am in possession of said note.
Now, I myself, find it hard to believe that someone apparently studying for the bar, would handle a situation like this, in such a childish and immature manner. Having said that, I realize that it’s hot, it’s humid and nerves are on edge. However, there is no need for name calling and F word usage.
So please, everyone, remember to be polite and courteous to your fellow students. I am sure if the student who was using the study room had been informed that said room had been reserved by another student in a polite way, the first student would have moved and found another study area.
Please play nicely!
