Please Maintain Quiet in the Center

DCLI strives to maintain a quiet place to study. The Center requests the cooperation of all students and faculty in adhering to our quiet study rule, especially during the upcoming Exams Period. This includes refraining from loud talking, cell phone use, or any other loud behavior. Please respect your fellow student's desire for quiet study space. Study rooms are available for groups that need to collaborate. Otherwise, please save any conversations for outside of the Center. This policy pertains to all areas of the Center, including all three floors of the library and the Service Center desk. We are confident, with everybody's cooperation, that we will successfully provide a quiet place to study.
