Smart See, Smart Do: Grinnell College


“Check out the stacked cube of study carrels in Burling Library,” says Grinnell College senior and campus tour guide Mairead O’Grady. “We call it the jungle gym. It has kind of a tree house feel—you can climb up the ladder to the upper ones for a great view of the library, or you can crawl into one of the lower ones like a kid in a playhouse. It makes studying a lot more entertaining!” O’Grady is a music and French double major from Milton, Massachusetts.
