Of course this had to be first on the list. The library is a great place because its quiet and you can usually find a dark corner to hole yourself up in for hours at at time. The downsides are that it is hard to find rooms to study in groups and the librarian will usually yell at you for talking. Also it may be hard to find a spot during finals time.
2. Coffee Shops
This a great option for people who need to work in a group and/or don’t mind being surrounded by others. It makes you feel like you’re not isolated so if you need some human interaction the coffee shop is the right place for you. However if you get distracted easily or need a quiet place to work then I can’t recommend you do your work at a coffee shop.
For those of you who go to a school on or near the coast the beach is a great option to get some homework and studying done. At UCSB I know plenty of people who did their weekly reading on the beach while they caught a tan. If you need to get some serious work done I would go with another option since many of you will forget sunscreen and will get burned.
Just like the beach a park is a great option for those who really enjoy the outdoors and like to work outdoors. It basically has the same perks and downsides as the beach but it is still a great option to those who don’t have a beach but still want to study outside.
Where do you study? Feel free to tweet us with the places that you like to study.
