A Homey Library

Family photos, food baskets, bouquets of fresh flowers, and stuffed animals are not what you would expect to see upon entering a law library (or most any library for that matter). But this is exactly what you find in the Regent Law Library.

Since law students spend countless hours in the library, Regent allows students to reserve study carrels on a per-semester basis. Those students who take advantage of this service have gone a step further than to simply house their books here; they turn their carrels into little pieces of home away from home, filling them with items that give them the comfort and strength that make pressing into their studies less daunting.

Not only that but carrels also serve as places (other than on Facebook that is) for students to leave notes, Bible verses, and gifts in the hopes of encouraging or brightening another’s day, and to get to know each other in a slightly less academic atmosphere.

At $10 per-semester, a study carrel is one of the least expensive, most effective investments Regent Law students make. It’s also an invaluable tool to continue to foster the supportive and caring community by which members of the Regent Law family are so blessed.
