Stop 10: COB 1 & 2, Leo and Dottie Kolligian Library, and the Academic Quad

Welcome to the original heart of UC Merced. Kolligian Library opened in 2005, the same year the university’s first classes were held. The library’s Lantern Café is always purring with collegial energy. Adjacent to the library are Classroom Office Building (or, simply, COB) 1 and 2, home for the School of Social Sciences, Humanities and the Arts. Alongside the buildings are Scholars Lane and the Carol Tomlinson-Keasey Academic Quad. At one end of the quad is our signature Beginnings sculpture. In a wonderful campus tradition, new Bobcats pass through its arches to mark the start and finish of their UC Merced careers.
