Students gather to study.

KALAMAZOO, Mich.—Western Michigan University students will have a new, comfortable, supervised study environment available to them beginning Monday, Sept. 8, that allows them to track their study hours. Instructors will also have a way to incorporate supervised study hours into their courses. 

An open house to experience the Bronco Study Zone will be from 1 to 3 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 20, on the second floor of Waldo Library. The new area will allow students to log study hours with a card-swipe system to fulfill requirements set by instructors and student organizations.

The area is open to any WMU student and will be staffed Sunday through Thursday in the late afternoon and evening with times posted at the location. Students wanting to improve their study habits can enter the zone and will receive academic support and coaching by zone staff.

Students who wish to help at the Study Zone as a staff member can volunteer or can take an academic coaching course, UNIV 1030, for academic credit.

Refreshments and snacks will be provided at the open house. Attendees will have an opportunity to swipe into the zone using their Bronco Card and be entered into a drawing for door prizes, including two Millennium restaurant $50 gift certificates.
