AMES hosts Open House

Opened March 2, the repurposed seminar room aims to redefines the way students learn and provide a space dedicated to the programs of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies and Asian and Pacific Islander Studies.

The library itself breaks many Western conceptions of an academic space. The room is lined with decorative floor cushions and bolsters to offer flexible seating. In the back of the room is a display case with various artifacts, including a 3000-year-old inscribed Jordanian tablet. While precious artifacts can be found throughout the room, the many everyday objects present there seek to give the library a comfortable feel.

You can check our beautiful space over here.
