    GPS Waypoints are General Purpose Study spaces that you'll find on your way around campus. They are designed, managed, and maintained by the Office of Classroom Management with student needs in mind. When you find a gold push pin marking a GPS Waypoint, you'll know that it's maintained as a study space.
