image: "Minds at work" headlineThe business of America may be business, but the business of the College is learning. That means studying. At all hours. In all kinds of places. And with varying degrees of intensity. When fall term opens, the mood can seem leisurely as students lounge on the Quads, perusing a Great Book or two. By finals time, concentration is the name of the game.
