With the additional faculty and staff on the second floor of Schulz the noise level traveling to the third floor “quiet study area” is a concern. Are there options to mitigate the noise?

We are looking at noise mitigation options should they be needed on the third floor. This is somewhat challenging because the State Fire Marshall prohibits the covering or altering of the floor cutouts from the third to the second floor. In addition, the Library is shifting the parts of the quiet study area from the 3rd Floor North to the 3rd Floor South in an effort to help mitigate potential noise.
