Q. I find the new library color very depressing. I don’t think it is a good idea to paint, probably the most visited place on campus, in a heavy dark color. Considering the upcoming depressing rain and intense school year, students need something brighter and happier.
A. Thank you for taking the time to comment. We’ve received a wide range of feedback regarding the new color scheme. The majority of the commentary has been positive. In all there are eleven new colors appearing on the seven floors of the Bennett Library including shades of yellow, green, blue, orange and red. We hope that the cumulative effect of freshly painted walls, a wide range of colors, replacement of missing light bulbs, and a number of other renovation activities will be a more enjoyable and successful experience of the facility for all its users.
