by Grad & Law Commons Student Staff
USD’s Graduate and Law Student Commons is more than a relaxed atmosphere to study; it is a wholesome and open community within the university itself. Located on the fourth floor of the University Center, the Commons offers a beautiful vista of the east side of campus as well as the Pacific Ocean. Furnished with comfortable couches, arm chairs, round tables, and study carrells, students can study independently, enjoy refreshments, take a nap, watch television, and more! Students use the refrigerator, water cooler, coffee pot, and other amenities for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. The large flat-screen television provides students with the opportunity to unwind with a favorite movie, catch the latest sports game, or stay up to date on political debates.
The Commons offers a wonderful break from the often monotonous atmosphere of the library, and many students choose the Commons as their main location to study. The Commons presents social opportunities for graduate students across campus to mingle, network, learn, and simply enjoy themselves. Also within the Commons is the Office of Graduate Ministry, which provides spiritual guidance for our students, and hosts many events, such as the monthly Theology on Tap. The Graduate and Law Student Commons may be a new addition, but it is quickly becoming a strong tradition.
