Bottoms up! New Drink Policy

Craving a cappucino while cramming? Pining for a Pepsi while perusing the periodicals? Go for it! Based on user feedback, the library has decided to permit all beverages* in covered containers on a trial basis.** The previous policy only allowed bottled water. Food remains off limits in the library.

Containers must have lids or caps. Please drink responsibly.

*Non-alcoholic beverages, that is.

** If we mess up and spill stuff everywhere, the privilege may be revoked, but we're all adults and we can totally handle this, right?

That's such great news! Spending hours in the library without anything to drink is terrible! I'm so glad for the new change!

Nice! I remember when I was a freshman me and my roommate went to the library for the first time for a research project, and my roommate bought a coffee at Starbucks and had to leave it at the front desk until we left, haha. It was a waste of her money. By the time we left it was stone cold. :)

Yay! Now I can drink my coffee while beating my brain to a pulp with knowledge. I mean, after all the time we spend in the library, I think we SHOULD be allowed to have some kind of refreshment to ease the neverending anxiety of homework... Btw, thank god for the last two weeks of school, Kno?

Wow, college hasn't changed! A long time ago, when I was an undergraduate, I used to always sneak drinks in.
