As finals begin, students must fill their brains with all sorts of information, but their first mental hurdle is finding the perfect places for studying. Students cramming all across campus explain why they chose their study spots:
Sean Kump ’12 Port Matilda, Pa.:
(In a classroom in Good Hall)
The library doesn’t have enough outlets upstairs to plug in my computer. And there aren’t as many distractions here. Plus, the library closes too early. If I have to be up late writing a paper, I don’t want to have to get up and find somewhere else to go.
Greg Williams ’15 Upper St. Clair, Pa.:
(In TNT lounge)
I can watch the football game here while studying. It’s not very good for studying, but whatever. I mostly study in my room, but I’m down here today to watch football.
Erin Burt ’12 Spring, Tx.:
(In Eagle’s Landing)
I’m more here to eat. I usually study in the lounges in Founder’s and at Standing Stone, because it’s quiet in the lounges and there’s coffee at Standing Stone.
Ariel Mouallem ’15 Livingston, N.J.:
(In the lobby of Von Liebig)
I like to study here in Von Liebig and in the library. I also like to study up there [points to second floor balcony area]. It’s comfortable and it’s quiet. That’s pretty much it.
T.J. Watkins ’15 Berlin, Pa.:
(In a lounge in Founder’s Hall)
I like it because it’s quiet and usually you get it to yourself. You can come in and get a lot of work done. I like to study in the library to because it’s quiet, but it’s nice to change places every now and then.
