The entrance to the Waterfront LLC features a large translucent glass wall bearing the Library Learning Commons logo of a book and computer mouse with the @ on it. The GBC logo and colour-bar frames the doorway into the library. Several people walk by the entrance in motion blur, and a couple other students stand next to the printer outside the library.
