The Best-Ever Study Haunts

Hello, People of the Internet!

I hope you are all having a fabulous week!  Right now, Luther is gearing up for final exams, which is both stressful (because tests are coming) and awesome (because Christmas is coming!)  But before tests or Christmas, I have a lot of studying to do, and that’s why today I’ll be showing you my top five study spots on campus!

So without further ado, here are my favorite study haunts, in no particular order:

 

1)  Valders Hall of Science, first floor

Valders is a great place to study because of the floor-to-ceiling windows, which give lots of natural light.  The chairs are also really comfy, and there’s plenty of space to spread out.

 

2)  Preus Library, second floor

When you really want to get work done, the second floor of the library is the place to go!  Unlike the first floor, the upper level is a quiet zone, so talking isn’t allowed.  There are tables to work at, study carrels, and plenty of comfy chairs.  Plus, there is a huge window with a great view of campus.

 

3)  The Union, first floor

This is one of the coziest places to study, and I love to sit by the fireplace.  There’s nothing like curling up by a warm fire to do some reading. The Oneota Market café is right there, too, which is perfect when you want a bite to eat!

 

4)  The Study Bubble

At the end of the hall in my dorm, there’s a tiny study alcove that we call The Study Bubble.  It’s not very big, but it fits a few chairs and a square coffee table.  There is a floor-to-ceiling window, two smaller windows, and a heater, which makes it very warm and bright.  It’s a great study getaway and it looks out over beautiful Koren.

 

5)  The CFA, second floor

The Center for the Arts is super cool – there are lots of windows, so it’s always very bright, and, generally speaking, it’s pretty quiet.  There are tons of potted plants everywhere, which makes for a nice atmosphere, and it’s great to be surrounded by the beautiful artwork that’s always on display.  Plus, the delicious scent of Sunnyside Café’s cinnamon rolls wafts up from the first floor and makes the whole building smell awesome.

 

And those are my favorite places to study at Luther!  There are plenty of other places to go as well – dorm study lounges, Koren, Olin, and so many more – but these places are where I spend most of my homework time.  In fact, I think I’ll be heading to a few of them today, because I have lots to do….

Have a marvelous week, and keep on keepin’ on!
