UC Davis student Danielle Schmid, a first-year psychobiology major, listens to classical music in the lobby of the Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts on Monday afternoon while she studies for fall-quarter final exams. In addition to the music, the lobby offers free coffee and plenty of outlets for computers and other devices as Mondavi staffers aim to make the center more of a campus gathering place.
