Students have been hitting the books at the Marriott Library since its inception in 1968. Nowadays, many students bring their laptops and tablets to the library to use as study tools, but before this technology was available, students could only use books and paper. Before the Marriott Library existed, students used a reading room which seated 100 students and contained a grand total of 12,950 volumes of text.

Due to complaints, new parking projects are currently in progress, including the Business Loop Parking Terrace and the Northwest Parking Garage. Parking, however, has always been a problem. Even in 1962, the Daily Utah Chronicle published stories about limited parking spaces available to students.

In 1971, students could see if they had made the cut for graduation by looking at a board of names, organized by college, posted in the university bookstore. Nowadays, students check their CIS page and receive an email notifying them if they have met graduation requirements.
