Schow is where all the books, bound journals and periodicals relating to science, math, and psychology are kept. It is also a popular studying location for many students. It is located between the Physics and Chemistry buildings in the Science Quad.


  • The Writing Workshop takes place in Schow on school nights.
  • The Eco-Cafe is just upstairs.
  • The bathrooms are much closer, and more attractive, than in Sawyer.
  • The lighting, air circulation, and temperature are much better than in Sawyer.
  • There are groups study rooms.
  • There are nice soft couches.
  • The Schow Public printer is quite reliable.
  • There is a copier for a dime a page. Sometimes they even let you copy things behind the desk for free.
  • Also in the copy room is a scanner. If you scan things in and email them to yourself, you can print them out for free. Just a thought.


  • Schow's acoustics are kind of terrible for a library. If you drop your pencil, or sneeze, or turn a page in your book, everyone around you will hear it. (More true for the front atrium than for the journal area to the right).

Fun facts

  • The chairs are adjustable in about 37 different ways, and each cost $500. The admissions office tours look down at Schow from the atrium to point out this fact to all prospective students and their families.
