Jerry Falwell Library

Last month, my school, Liberty University, opened their brand new $50 million dollar Jerry Falwell Library. This building is beautiful! With lots of reading areas, beautiful stacks, quiet study areas, and plenty of natural light, the library quickly became my favorite place to study. I haven’t actually used their crown jewel Automated Book Retrieval System (aka, Robot) to get a book, but I have enjoyed the dining and studying options that abound in this magnificent addition to my school’s campus. Here our some more wide-angled perspectives of the library.

The Austrian Room

On the University of Pittsburgh campus, it is impossible to not notice the Cathedral of learning, a 35 (or so) story building that houses a popular attraction called the Nationality Rooms. These rooms showcase the cultures of dozens of different nationalities and are a joy to visit. These pictures were taken in the Austrian room. This room was filled with red (my favorite color) and I noticed the chandeliers in particular. So I zoomed in and captured one of the ball shaped crystals on the chandelier and snapped the picture. It ended up being my girlfriend and mine’s favorite picture of the day.
