Opening Doors on the 3rd Floor
Students today rely on the University Library in many different ways, and it is our mission to support all their various needs. The Library will continue to be a resource for the creation of new knowledge and accessing information for learning and exploration. But, on a busy urban campus, we are also critically aware of our physical spaces as we are the largest provider of student study space for nearly 30,000 PSU students. With many of our students working and juggling family responsibilities, the Library takes on increased importance as their academic home when they are on campus. Renovating the 3rd Floor is our current capital fundraising priority. When students are inspired they will be successful. It is our goal to raise the expectations for what a library can provide for PSU students.
We have chosen to make the space reflect the needs of students today, but also give us the ability to adapt to evolving student study style. With nearly 1 million visitors to Millar Library annually, we have an exciting opportunity to affect more students with this one project than with any other physical space on campus.
In student surveys, the library is always among the top three places they value the most on campus. It is central to academic experiences of all students, a place where everyone studies and works. A place where learning happens. A place where dreams take flight.
Your gift will help us transform this space for our students. You will be helping improve what is already the most popular study space on campus and making it even more inviting and beneficial for our student scholars. We will be recognizing all donors who make gifts of $5,000+ in the space, as recognition of the difference made possible with the support of generous donors. Your gift will help us make our vision, boldness, planning, and imagination a reality in the life of PSU students as they work in our spaces every day.
