Come inside and Stay inside
78% of all students go there initially to get something to eat or drink.
After the new/renovated facility opened, there was a 750% increase in the number of Non-STEM majors going to the STEM building to "study or do homework alone."
Once they are inside, they stay:
Study with Others
200% increase in the number of STEM majors now using the new facility to study
95% of all students surveyed go to the new facility 4+ times per week (a 380% increase)
“We find that we have students from every academic discipline that are here. So you'll be walking down the hallways and you'll have chemistry next to Chinese, you'll have botany next to business, you'll have economics next to environmental science.”
— Luis E. Martinez, Ph.D. Director, Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship
