Orange is the New Health Sciences and Wangensteen Historical Libraries

By February 14, 2019September 16th, 2023No Comments

Color will mark the different areas within the Health Sciences Education Center.  

Both the Health Sciences Library and the Wangensteen Historical Library will be recognizable because of their earthy orange color palette.  

Good news! The Coalition for Health Environments Research summarized studies on the psychology of color and found that orange evokes warmth, comfort, and reassurance, and is noted for its ability to encourage verbal expression of emotion.

So rest assured that you will do great things as you study, collaborate, and build your next great idea in our new libraries.
