Commercial Benches provide a fantastic place, outside the classroom, for a whole host of activities. In this blog we discuss what university benches provide and how they really are much more than a bench at a university.
Students, a group of individuals who make up a university. But the reality is so much more than that definition. These are the future generation whom will be shaping our communities and our world in years to come. The people who will go on to make ground breaking discoveries, create incomprehensible technologies and change life as we know today. With that in mind is is of extreme importance that we provide them with the support, tools and essentials they need to assist them on the path to success both physically and emotionally.
Commercial Benches – invaluable for social interaction?
It is often joked about that many students simply enter into university life for a good time! Whilst sometimes this can be frowned upon, social interaction is an essential need for us as humans. We thrive on being able to interact and to communicate and share elements of our lives with others. Outside the university lecture halls everyone can be seen rushing around to and from classes. It is important to get the work and social balance. Commercial benches when placed appropriately in universities can provide the perfect place for such interactions to occur. They can be invaluable at proving a meetup point for social interactions. Not only with those we know but also with others who we may not.
Ask yourself how many times you have sat down on a commercial bench and someone else has come along. Requested if anyone was sat there and joined you onto to then embark on a conversation? It happens all the time and universities are no different.
Study Commercial Benches
Learning is achieved in different environments and in different circumstances. Some thrive within a University Lecture Theatre. Some in a Classroom. Many prefer to take time out on their own outside somewhere in order to continue their work or studies. Many people feel at one with nature and just simply love being in an outdoors environment.
Commercial university benches placed on campus can provide mini study zones. Students are able to sit down, to breathe in the fresh air and to settle down with a book or laptop to study. Many absorb more information in this particular setting. Campus benches are great at providing a handy place to study.
Thinking Commercial Benches
Emotions can run high whilst studying at university. Whether it is the pressure of a particular course, assignment, exam or other external factors such as finances or relationships. Sometimes it all gets too much. As humans, our instinct is simply to shut it all out, hide or simply to remove ourselves from that situation.
On many university campuses we often see people comforting others on a bench in order to take some time out. This time is essential to get themselves back into check. To a place emotionally they need where they can feel strong enough again to deal with whatever problem they may be facing.
Reflection on commercial benches on campuses are a great way of providing students with their own space. Time to simply have five minutes. Let’s face it, we all need a bit of peace and our own time every once in a while.
Personalised Commercial Benches
One of the more historical aspects of going to university is hearing about those who came before. Finding out about the history that led the university to be what it is today. Finding out about famous and groundbreaking people who have attended a particular university can leave a lasting mark.
With the above in mind many universities have buildings named after certain individuals. We see the same for some of the university benches that are installed. Placing a personalised bench dedicated to a famous scientist, outside a science building can be a real good topic of conversation but also a fantastic information point.
Dedicating benches in such way can also provide people with knowledge or a point of reference. Knowing where they actually are as university campus can sometimes be rather large in size.
Remembrance Commercial Benches
Finally, we see a lot of personalised benches installed in remembrance of someone special. Maybe a student who didn’t get to finish their journey, a lecturer or teacher who dedicated so much and sadly lost their lives. These are always a popular choice where university has perhaps played a key part within that person’s life.
Whatever the reason, there are many reasons for universities to install benches that go way beyond practicality. Next time you are wandering around a university campus take a look at the benches you see. Remember the alternative uses they actually can provide.
