Hutchins Library Steps: A Life in Photos

Over the last year, the library’s beautifully refurbished main floor has garnered a lot of attention. It was redesigned last summer to better support student learning and the response has been overwhelmingly positive. Something that hasn’t been talked about much, though, is how our students and faculty use the front of the library. From hosting physics classes to welcoming sketching students to serving as a place of protest, our library steps have a life of their own. Here are some great pics from the last few years of the sort of happenings you can expect on the steps of Hutchins Library:

One of the inauguration events to welcome President Roelofs was “Chalk-Up-Berea” in April 2013. It intentionally coincided with a Department Labor Meeting to allow all student workers with their supervisors to “Celebrate Our Berea” by showcasing in chalk the diversity of Berea’s labor program. Here are two library workers, Sona and Matt.
