Welcome back, Charlotte School of Law!
The library is now in its permanent home on the 4th and 5th floors. The circulation desk, featuring your course reserves and study aids, can be found on the 5th floor. The 5th floor is also where you will find the Reference Librarians. The 4th floor has been designated as a completely quiet study area.
The new library has state of the art collaborative study spaces and more study rooms – all designed to improve your user experience. Everything is shining and new!
Speaking of shining and new-we’re friends, right? And friends can talk to each other about touchy subjects, right? I’d like to broach a touchy subject: our bathroom conditions. I will refrain from making toilet paper puns because they are tearable.
The problem is not the Charlotte Plaza janitorial staff. We can all do our part in maintaining a high level of bathroom etiquette. I can only speak to the deteriorating conditions in the ladies room. I don’t know how things go down in the men’s room. Nothing can be proven, at least, and those records have been sealed.
I do believe that the following helpful tips can be applied to both men’s and women’s bathrooms:
- FLUSH FLUSH FLUSH!! I know that automatic flushing can throw anyone off their game. If automation does not work, push the silver button on the top.
- If you sprinkle when you tinkle, be a sweetie and wipe the seatie. (yeah, I stole it, but it’s still good)
- Wash your hands – that’s where disease comes from. Did you know that only 30% of people wash their hands in the afternoon, according to a survey I just made up? It’s true.
- It is polite to pull down paper towels for the other person in the restroom with you. This gesture also invites them to wash their hands.
- For the ladies, if you are brushing out your hair or touching up your make-up, clean up after yourself. No one wants to wash their hands at the sink covered with hairs and foundation.
- In fact, everyone should clean up after themselves. Don’t leave a puddle of water behind after you finish washing your hands. Let’s keep it neat and clean.
- Lastly, CHECK BEHIND YOU WHEN YOU’RE DONE. Sometimes the trash receptacle is full. If your paper towel falls on the floor, DON”T LEAVE IT THERE. Pick it up and throw it away in a less full trash receptacle. Did you know that every time you leave the bathroom dirty that it makes an angel cry?
It’s a new year, and time for new beginnings! Let’s all do our part in keeping all aspects of the new building clean.
