Secret Locations in Hyland Hall

Many business majors, my self included, have found them selves “living” in Hyland over the past semesters. Now, I’m not saying this is a bad thing by any means but after that second 6:30 to 9:00pm night class of the week or sixth semester of straight class in Hyland it surely does feel like you “live” there.

–I’m sure that many of the staff and professors that work in Hyland can attest to this as well.

With all this time spent “living” in Hyland I have done some exploring and found a few secrete locations that I like to take advantage of. In other words, these places seem to be much less visited or not nearly as well known as other spots throughout the building.

I am going to share a few of my secret locations so that all of you lucky followers of The CoBE Report will be able to use them as well.

  • [Secret restrooms] This location is just far enough out of sight that many have no clue it exists. Enter in the front entrance and follow along the right wall passing right by Timmerman Auditorium. Take a right down the small hallway before the big TV and there you will find the secrete restrooms.
  • [Secrete meeting rooms] Project rooms are scattered throughout the building but are always seemingly empty. No group study rooms left at the library? Sign-up for or snag one of the secret meeting rooms located on the second and third floors to get some group work done.
  • [Secret study area] Over all, not many have ever ventured up to the fourth floor but if you need a super quiet spot to study this is the place to go. Head into the professors offices, opposite of the Deans suite, and follow the halls all the way down and there you will find the secrete study area.
  • [Secret stairways] These aren’t so secret but are not utilized to the extent that they should be. The main stairways at the front and back of the building are busy and cramped during passing time (especially at the back). Use the four stairways located at the end of each main hallway. Not many use these secrete stairways – take advantage of the open space.
  • [Secret lab] Actually called the Financial Investment Center — not a secret place at all. In fact, it probably grabs hundreds of  sets of eyes daily because of the live stock ticker in the windows. This lab, filled with all sorts of awesome technology that everyone should check out when they have the chance, has limited access making it the secret lab of Hyland.

Has anyone else found any other secret locations in Hyland? Feel free to share, we would love to hear about them!
