In todays discussion group, we discussed how “space” can effect a students education and study skills. We collectively compared pros and cons of West Chester’s campus and how the placement of the buildings can affect how and where students study and work. West Chester has rather small to medium sized classes which can help with 1 on 1 student teacher interactions. This can be helpful to get students more enthusiastic about class and participating. We also discussed the layout of campus and how academic buildings are separate from the housing buildings. The pros of this layout is that buildings of the same purpose are all close to each other. Although, a con to this layout is how far away these buildings are, like the library, from housing buildings. College students tend to study late at night and it’s inconvenient to have to walk that far all the way to the library at those late hours. Therefor, students resort to studying in their rooms or hall lounges.
