Sometimes, the crush of the hustle and bustle of campus life is appealing. Sometimes, all students want is a little peace and quiet. A space of their own. Meet BSU's new learning pods. Each technology- ready comfy oasis offers just what the serious student needs to get the job done. Tucked into the Rondileau Campus Center student lounge, each of the four high-backed modern pods is private, offers a little sound proofing and is equipped with its own light, electrical outlet, padded seat, footrest and sliding desk shelf plus easy access to a KwikBoost charging station. What's better than this? "e learning pods are a comfortable place for students to complete assignments," said sophomore Adamajan Bah. "ey provide an efficient way to sneak a quick last- minute review session in between classes." Adamajan believes the learning pods will be especially useful for commuter students who don't have the luxury of returning to the residence hall during the day. Students have President Clark to thank for the idea, IT to thank for the research, and Facilities Management & Planning (FM&P) to thank for helping to determine the perfect location. e success of the collaboration between IT and FM&P is clearly evident. On a daily basis, students can be seen taking advantage of these ergonomic, semi- private workspaces – a comfortable pause in an oen hectic day.
