Alternative Study Spaces

     Durick Library is an absolutely amazing study space.  I love it so much I wrote two blogs about and here.  Sometimes, though, it is nice to study in another area for a change, especially if you want to study for your finals.  I have compiled a small list of some of the possible alternative study spaces on campus!

  • the academic buildings- the academic buildings are open until very late at night and are really nice and quiet study places.  I went to Jean Marie with my best friend Megan today and we spent about 3 hours doing our Christianity study guides.  I really liked doing my homework there and I will definitely be going to other academic buildings in the future.
  • the Center for Women and Gender- this house is right near Ross and is an excellent place to do homework.  I have gone there before when Megan has volunteered there.  They are open frequently, but have limited hours-
Sunday            6 pm – 10 pm
Monday          12 pm– 9 pm
Tuesday          12 pm – 9 pm
Wednesday     9 am – 10 pm
Thursday        12 pm – 10 pm
Friday              CLOSED
  • Eddie's lounge- located upstairs in Alliot, there are some comfy couches, chairs, and tables for you to do your work
  • the purple couches in Alliot- pretty self explanatory, but they are so comfortable and today the fireplace was on!
  • Upstairs in Alliot- there are some nice chairs and tables next to the balcony overlooking the purple couches and also there are some private rooms that you could work in
  • Saint Edmund's lounge- another great study place with lots of seating
  • don't forget about the common rooms in your dorm building, they are made just for studying!
  • the upper room of the chapel- the upper room is always open and has two nice big couches and is a really welcoming a warm place to get away to
     I hope that if you choose not to go to Durick Library, this list will give you some inspiration of other places to go study.  I know that I will be using these different areas this coming week to study in.  I hope you all have a good rest of the semester and that you're not too stressed.
