"In renovating the new floor, did you make serious environmental and energy efficiency considerations? It looks nice, but it would be even better if the designers could have incorporated a forward thinking design approach and had the renovations be environmental in their nature."
"It has better lighting. Better air quality. Better Signage. Easier [?]."
"It looks cleaner and very open (maybe too empty looking). Dislike: automatic sliding doors--what's wrong with opening a door? What a waste of energy!"
"The smell of the painting hasn't gone yet; in spite of that, this is the best library in the school."
"It's awesome. Absolutely awesome. It doesn't have that 1950s look or smell anymore. It's very modern and clean."
"Very clean & classy."
"I have environmental allergies - I think the area looks great - except I can't stay in it for longer than walking to the elevator or signing out a book. I get very ill. :("
"Smells like poison."
"I can't believe how poor it looks for an entire summer's worth of inconveniance. What a waste of money and time. Too modern, no character. Smelly & dark. Lame."
"I love it. The sliding doors are superb. It looks fab. I love the new car smell. It's less dingy than before. More room. I feel though the rest of the library floors will be jealous of the 2nd."
"The environment is perfect, except the smell, also more computers are set up, but still not enough for all students."
"It looks very nice, but I wonder if it is actually necessary. I believe a lot of money must have been spent on renovating it, but I didn't find the old layout a problem at all. The new layout seems too fancy. A library is simply a quiet place to study. All the fancy decorations can be saved. I would rather have my tuition decreased. Just out of curiosity, does the new layout make the library greener? Because if it doesn't, I find it a huge waste of money and resources and imposed a large amount of inconvenience for students. I always wonder why the library lights are turned on all night long, and this new renovation is perhaps another waste of our valuable resources. "
"Bomb diggidy... but way too hot. Conserve energy and turn down the heat. So unnecessary. Pretty embarrassing for such a respectable school to be so IRRESPONSIBLE."
"I'm glad Browsers is back so I can get a cup of coffee on this side of campus in the evenings. It's got the new library smell. The floor is pretty. It's good there are more computers."
"Beautiful! It looks and smells awesome."
"Cool! It'll stop stinking in a few days or weeks, I hope."
