A Study in Spaces

The unveiling of the new Learning Commons at the Wisconsin School of Business this spring offers an opportunity to celebrate the spaces where Business Badgers have gone for decades to find a quiet place to work alone or collaborate with classmates. While there have been formal spaces such as a computer lab at the Commerce Building or the Business Library at Grainger Hall, students have always found their own nooks and crannies to cram for exams or finalize a project. The three-level Learning Commons, which opened in May, provides the entire WSB community something bigger and brighter—just like the futures of the students who will study there.

Look for photos of the finished space in the Fall issue of Update.
