Though much smaller than Taylorsville-Redwood, Miller Campus has seven buildings situated along a connecting spine of green lawn and stepped walkways. Hot spots for studying vary from building to building.
Perhaps the most popular study space at Miller is the cafeteria space in the Culinary Arts building at the western end of campus, according to Josh Nelson, the reception and information desk specialist for the Public Safety building, located across from Culinary Arts.
The cafeteria adjacent to Jerry’s, the campus’ full-service food venue, provides tables and seats for over 130 people, six computer station terminals, and some comfy sofas that face a wall-hung large television that runs programming throughout the day.
Students are often found here studying because they can spread out across tables while enjoying a bite to eat.
“The cafeteria is definitely a popular place for students,” says Nelson. “Also, students like to study in the lobby space of the Corporate Partnership building.”
The Corporate Partnership building is located just east of the Culinary Arts building and has seating and tables for over 25 people in its lobby space between classrooms.
In the space are a few lounge-type chairs, indoor plants, and vending machines. The lobby is well lit during the day from a large south-facing wall of glass that overlooks the campus green.
Miller Campus does have a library space in the Miller Free Enterprise Center (MFEC) – and at approximately 25 feet by 25 feet, it is the smallest of SLCC’s libraries. The almost hidden location and small size make it a quiet place to study, according to Rashida Esa, a third year student who works the library support desk.
“Miller’s library gets used because it is very quiet, and they have free printing,” says Esa.
