Home Away From Home


My seminar here at Stanford has a pretty steady diet of daily reading, but I've found the perfect place to spend a few hours each afternoon and evening: the Bender Room on the fifth floor of the Bing Wing, part of the Green Library. This quiet, sparsely populated space has a comfortable mix of tables, study carrells, and comfy couches and reading chairs, along with air conditioning, wireless access, and superb views of the university's main quad and the nearby foothills. It's perfectly quiet. And there's probably not a better place on campus to see the sunset this time of year.

Just a note from the past from a voice from the past.
The Green Library has been named since I was there. Then it was merely the maybe-5-year-old Undergraduate Library. It was so different from "Main" that the students abbreviated its name to "UGLI."
