“The Monroe Library gives students every opportunity to succeed as long as they have the drive to enter through the doors.”
The Monroe Library Friend of the Month for September is Troy Thayer! Troy is a junior Biology major with a double minor in Math and Chemistry. A native of Tacoma, Washington, Troy decided to come to Loyola to experience a culture different from his home. Troy’s many on-campus activities include: Concert Band, Swimming Club, TriBeta, Pi Mu Epsilon Math Club, and First in the Pack. Troy also volunteers at the Hope Lodge and is an Eagle Scout.
Troy plans on studying abroad for part of his senior year. After graduation, Troy wants to become a dentist, earn his PhD, and become a professor of dentistry.
Troy uses the Monroe Library as a refuge to focus on work. He utilizes many of our resources including reserves, computers, study rooms, and the library’s many quiet study spaces, often studying until the library closes at 2am!
Troy thinks that the Monroe Library can help further student success by extending hours on Saturday. “When students have exams on Monday, it is difficult to study because the library is only open until 6pm. If the building were open later, that would be ideal.” Troy also stated, “The Monroe Library gives students every opportunity to succeed as long as they have the drive to enter through the doors.”
Thank you for using the Monroe Library, Troy, and congratulations on being our Friend of the Month!
