A new poll of undergraduates by Steelcase Education being released today has found that when asked about locations on campus that influenced their decision to enroll, 51 percent cited classrooms, while only 42 percent cited student centers or extracurricular places. Further, 38 percent of students said they valued study places, and 36 percent said that they valued libraries. The findings challenge conventional wisdom that students are judging campuses primarily by their leisure and recreational facilities.
