Madison recent grad from U of C: There’s a room in the Taylor Institute Building that has huge windows and piano that people are typically playing, one of the best spots to study! There are also “silent floors” in the TFDL library, if you need a good study session without distractions! The writing centre in the TFDL Library will help you edit and check over your papers for free!!!
