Powell Library from Royce Auditorium. It may look familiar as it has stood in for Libraries, Dorms, Spy Agencies, Palaces and just about anything a producer can think of when he wants a "prestige" shot in a film. It is also crowded and stanky around finals time, when it is open 24/7.
But you walk up to the Quad and it sits beautifully across from Royce Hall. And it is special in that way only your alma mater can be.
