Many college students spend much of their day in or around a college building. But have you considered how these buildings are actively affecting their quality of life? In the wise words of Winston Churchill, "We shape our buildings and afterward our buildings shape us." We used this same reference in February of last year to talk about how campus buildings can change our behavior. But what about our comfort, mood, etc? The fact is that student comfort, mood, and quality of life can fluctuate greatly depending on the atmosphere of the spaces they spend the most time in. While it can be easy to discount or even ignore completely the effect that architecture has on our day-to-day lives, we shouldn't. Nearly every moment of every day is influenced by architecture. So if we want students to live happier, healthier lives, it seems reasonable that we pay a bit more attention to the design of the buildings they spend their time in.
