Students React to Opening of Renovated Eskind Library

Posted by on Monday, August 20, 2018 in Student Life .

The Annette and Irwin Eskind Family Biomedical Library and Learning Center opened July 18 after a yearlong, $12.9 million renovation with infrastructure improvements and updates to support the continuing evolution of medical education. Read more about the renovation in this MyVU article, Renovated Eskind Library opens, prepared to support training of future generations of physicians.

We asked our med students to share their thoughts on the new building.

LOVE the study booths with whiteboard walls. PERFECTO!

There’s nothing like having a beautiful space to study in, especially when you’re a little worn out! Getting to spend the end of my first year studying in the beautiful new library really helped me push through to the end!


A learning space that reflects the gravity of the curriculum.


It’s so bright and beautiful! The sunshine kept me going those last couple days before my last set of exams.

The 360 degree white board cubicles on the 3rd floor are what study dreams are made of.




In the words of Dr. Steven Eskind, “If you look like you know what you’re doing, people will think you will know what you’re doing.” The new fancy space looks like we know what we’re doing.


The new EBL space is cool from the windows to the wall 🙂
