You have a huge project due tomorrow. 


Like always, you can’t understand why you waited so long to do it. Nevertheless, the clock’s ticking, and you have to get to work.

If you live downtown, the WVU library is likely the place to go in this situation. Unfortunately, unlike the Evansdale library, which is open 24/7 Monday through Thursday, the downtown library closes at 2 a.m. on those days.

This means you’re working against two deadlines: the one when your assignment is due and the one when you’re booted out of the library, maybe even forced to return to a place that is loud and not sensitive to your needs for concentration. Maybe that home doesn’t have the same resources offered at the library. But return home you must — unless you want to take an Uber to Evansdale.

For the night owls out there, the downtown and Evansdale library should be open for students no matter the hour. Academics can’t always wait until the morning.
