SciLi Gets “Quiet Study Lounge,” Emergency Exit Access

The new SciLi entrance will blow your mind.

Following on approximately 157 years (rough estimate) of complaints by generations upon generations of Wesleyan students, you can now get to SciLi from Church Street without having to loop all the way around the stupid Exley lobby. (Edited correction: you can get to the 24-hour study room, not SciLi itself.) Instead, thanks to the year-long efforts of WSA big dogs Austin Dong ’15 and Zachary Malter ’13, you can just waltz through the SciLi Emergency Exit with Wescard access, where you’ll find yourself in a brand new “24/7 Quiet Study Lounge” that will remain in place throughout next semester. (Okay, the lounge isn’t actually new at all; it just has a new name and 24/7 accessibility.)

We posted the news on Facebook, where it quickly garnered 29 likes, as well as an official explanation from WSA President Zachary Malter ’13:

This was the product of a WSA initiative to get a 24 hour study space. We will do an official launch in January.

I asked Malter if the room will remain the same after finals week. “The room will remain in place for all of next semester and beyond,” he told Wesleying.
