Secret Study Spots
There are many obvious places to study across campus that are easily found, well equipped, and will adequately get you through your studies. However I am here to tell you there are better places to hit the books; places with absolute silence, with plush reclining stairs, with breathtaking views and places with out another soul in site. Now that I am a senior I can finally divulge my secrets and share with you my knowledge of the campus. The first places I recommend studying are Wolf law library and the Benson earth science library. Both of these libraries are hardly ever crowded, usually nearly silent, and are refreshing in their modern atmosphere when compared to the historical Norlin library. For the next set of secret study spots you may need to make a friend or two in order to enjoy them. Often times engineering students have access to labs and or study rooms that are coded onto their buff one cards. In my experience these rooms are often conference style rooms with large tables perfect for spreading out every note and text you need to absorb knowledge and complete an assignment. The next set of learning spaces I will introduce may be slightly controversial but I wouldn’t be honest with you if I didn’t admit that I get my best studying done in the classroom. Nearly all students in the college of arts and science will become familiar with Helms, Humanities, and Hale however what not all students realize is that these buildings usually remain open after classes of concluded for the day. I have spent many nights far into the a.m. within these buildings walls surrounded by friends or others in the same class; usually with impressive results.
