Finding the rooms: The Science I building houses The Chenango Room and Einsteins Bagels. Room 149
is the auditorium at the other end of the building.
LN 1104 is the Graduate Student Lounge at the base of the Library Tower (across the corridor from the coffee shop).
Coming from off campus and need a little more help locating us? For either room your best bet would be to park in the Visitor Lot across from the Bartle Library. Either access the campus map or ask at the Information Booth on your way into campus to find that lot. From that Visitor Lot you will cross the street and go down the main walkway between the Library and the Lecture Hall. LN 1104 is the room at ground level at the base of the Library Tower. Science I is the building across from the Lecture Hall once you come to the plaza in front of the Library Tower. You'll see it says Chenango Room on the outside of the building. You want to keep walking as straight as possible; Room 149 is the auditorium that forms the leg of the L of the Science I building.
Our SPRING READERS' SERIES in 2015 will feature Matthew Siegel & Margaux Fragoso (2/17); Jericho Brown (2/24); Manuel Gonzales (3/17); Katey Schultz (3/24); and Jim Daniels (4/21). WRITING LIFE presenters will be Robert Colley of Stone Canoe (2/25); Steve Woodward of Graywolf (3/23); and John Amen of Pedestal Magazine (4/22).
