  • Please do not excuse students from your classes en masse without advising them to avoid the Barnwell Library. Students who cut or are encouraged to leave classes are not welcome at Barnwell as they typically come here to socialize.
    Many students rely on the library as a sanctuary of quiet and order in which they may study in earnest. Of late there has been a dramatic spike in the number of students being “let out” of their rostered classes.  We do monitor student usage throughout the day.  Thank you for your consideration in this manner.   J. Lobron (5/10)

    • ATTENTION JUNIORS:  Per the School District of Philadelphia’s vaccination requirements, all incoming seniors must show proof of meningitis vaccine received after age 16.  Please submit your proof of immunization or exemption to the nurses’ office within the first week of your senior year. Leigh A. Coakley, RN (6/1)
