Law library

Maybe one of the most best kept secrets of our time...the U law library, formally known as the S.J. Quinney Law Library.

Probably the quietest place I have ever been, I can't help but feel guilty for disturbing really smart people by typing or turning pages. It's true...but you know what...it suits me. Although I am particularly fond of the new revamped University of Utah library with its huge windows and open spaces, I guess I am starting to grow a little fond of this place.

The law library is just what you might imagine it to be...full of books, actual law students who are determined to make a difference in the world...and very studious-looking desks with lights in the middle of the table! Ah yes...that is right.


So...little do you know that not only do I love the ambiance of this naturally-lit, books-stacked-to-the-ceiling kind of place...but it actually makes me feel smart! Smart, spelled S-M-A-R-T, not the way that Homer spelled it on the Simpson...with the song that went:

I am so Smart
S-M-R-T...doh!

I get to sit and do my homework a little more productively than I would have thought. It has been 2 hours, and I wrote up an entire data collection plan....CRAZY! I thought that it would have taken me all day. Who knew that a near-creepy silence of a library could do that??

Although I am jamming to my fave Concerto in C Minor written by Bach, and researching regulations for elections from all 50 states using the state annotations found here in the library, I can't help but wonder what would happen if I switched over to a little John Mayer or ACDC....

I think the best kept secrets of all time include things like: Who shot JFK? or Did we really land on the moon in '69? In fact if you want a really quiet place, I hear the moon is as good as it gets!
