Did You Know? We Have A Meditation Room

In partnership with Multicultural Affairs, the library has set aside one study room as a dedicated interfaith prayer and meditation room.

The meditation room is in a quiet corner on the 3rd Floor of the library, formerly study room 301C. The room is sparsely furnished but includes a couple chairs, “a shoe shelf, a kneeling bench, meditation pillows and prayer rugs fitted with compasses.”

According to Kimberly Weatherly, director of the Office of Multicultural Affairs, “We’re inclusive; it’s about making sure the needs of diverse students are met, and that includes faith.”
