Yea, you'd think for an English building that maybe having windows in the rooms might help improving mood and creative thinking. But nope! Let's just make a building that makes you feel closed in on all the way around. The worst was 06-07 when they were removing the asbestos and it was just terrible.
And I get that you can't really change the architecture at this point - so have the walls be something other than a dirty yellowing-white color. Do SOMETHING.
Kind of a simple answer for me. My favorite was always a tie between the library and the union. I could always find little ares to study in both of those that always got me to do my best work. Mostly the T Levels of the library as hardly anyone goes to those.
My least favorite was probably Ross. Just those stupid benches that left marks on your back side for days if you were waiting for a class to start.
Favorite has to be agronomy, but it has one of the worst classrooms on campus. I think it was 2020. All the seats leaned forward making it nearly impossible to sleep. I had that classroom for at least 10 classes and they were all at 8 in the morning. Always fought for one of the seats by the east wall so you could lean on one of the pillars. Anybody know what classroom I'm talkin about?
Can't believe no one has said Town Engineering. Maybe there just isn't as many CE's or ConE's on this forum.
Either way the place sugs.
I graduated before Town Engineering was occupied. I did spend quite a bit of time in Marston Hall and the Engineering Research Institute Lab that was in Marston Annex. Beardshear was great but the upper floors were creepy. The stairs going up to the upper floors were not solid as I would have liked. The Memorial Union was probably the neatest building on campus.
