Exercise Your Body and Mind at the Health Sciences Library

Get your blood flowing to get your brain working at the new bike desks at the Health Sciences Library.

Over the summer, the library installed two bike desks to help promote healthy studying habits. Due to the positive reception for our standing desks, the library chose bike desks as the next step in continuing to providing a healthy and stimulating environment.

“The bikes are a great way to unwind while still studying,” says accelerated nursing program student Natalie Cundiff. “I’m able to get moving if I don’t have time for the gym that day.”

Many studies have shown that the use of bike desks results in increased energy and motivation as well as students feeling more successful in studying. While bike desks aren’t a replacement for exercise, they are a simple way to be active.

Alli Burke, accelerated nursing program student, also enjoys the new additions to the library. “It’s a way to stay active and get my blood flowing so I’m not constantly sitting for long hours at a time.”

The bike desks are currently located in the copy room and are first come, first serve.

Making New and Improved Space for You at the Health Sciences Library

Over the summer, you might have noticed the Health Sciences Library moved to a single service desk. This means that we can free up more study and research space for you!

In a student survey, our students asked for soft seating areas to make for comfortable studying and research. It has always been our library’s goal to serve our users; and, we work toward providing the best service we can give. This includes both research help and study space.

With more and more questions being answered virtually through chat and email, consolidating to one desk was the natural step toward the library of the future. It’s very early in the planning stages and we will keep you updated.

If you find yourself visiting the library, please add your ideas to our idea board. We want to hear your ideas, big or small!
