There should be more desks rather than "reading" chairs. Like in the old microtext room there should only be maybe one area of the blue chairs for "reading." Replace the other area with one or two more desks.
Thank you for this recommendation. You are right, unlike most other college students in America, Wake students prefer table seating rather than comfortable chairs. As we acquire new furniture, we will keep this in mind. The Microtext Room is only in use for this one year as a study area, however. It will undergo renovation this summer for another purpose next year.
