It is a recognized fact that adequate lighting for student study rooms is an extremely important phase of the physical set-up of any institution of learning. The purpose of this survey was to make a thorough investigation of lighting intensities now available in all rooms used for study and recitation at Prairie View State College, to record those intensities in such form as to permit of comparison with standards of the IES and to make recommendations in the instances where the illumination intensities were abnormal. A study of available literature reveals that the investigation is the first of its kind at the school. Since there is a distinct relationship between study room lighting and student grades, the author hopes that this study will serve as a foundation for subsequent yearly investigations directed toward the maintenance of proper lighting conditions.
