Coffee, Books and Conversation

By Steve Shaw

For those of you who might not know, you have access to one of the liveliest spots on campus—The McGregor Library. Why the name McGregor? Douglas McGregor was a pioneering management theorist who was the inspiration for the McGregor School, which eventually became Antioch University McGregor, which is now Antioch University Midwest.

Your Library is a philosophical and social center of student life on campus. As often as we have students studying or finishing that final draft of a paper, we have students queuing for the Dizney Writing Center, and engaging in lively discussions that have spilled over from classroom conversations regarding current events, literature, educational theory, sociology and art.

Far from static and cold, we have grown from and continue to seek out student involvement. Students have donated artwork, plants, games, and most importantly, coffee. We always have coffee available, as well as hot water for tea. Our collection has grown as former students have donated their class readings to us—knowing that you will need the same books, they wanted to save some of you the expense of purchasing text-books. That’s community! Drop in, grab a cup, find a book and see what all the fuss is about.

The McGregor Library is located on the second floor of AUM, room C201. Hours are Monday through Thursdays 10am to 9pm., Fridays 10am to 5pm and Saturdays 8am to 6pm.
