Nooks and Books: Places to Study on Campus
If I asked you, “What would you rather be doing than studying right now?,” most of us could probably think of 1,001 ways to answer that question. Perhaps you are even putting it off at this moment to read this post! Let’s be honest with ourselves and admit that studying is hard. But not all aspects of it have to be difficult. To make things easier, find a favorite location on campus to learn!
Atmosphere is very important while studying. Visiting a space where you feel comfortable, and that has few distractions, will help you get the most out of your study time. Previously, my favorite place to study was located in my home. I spent many hours studying (and yes, cramming the night before a test) in that room! Now that I have moved to campus, I’ve really made it a priority to find a few spaces where I can go to get the most out of my study experience, and I’d love to share them with you!
- The Cave – I love sitting in an area with a lot of natural light. If you also enjoy sunshine while studying, this is the perfect place for you! Make sure to stop by Jazzman’s for a caffeinated pick-me-up while you’re there too.
- Shafer Library – If I really want to hit the books, this is where I go. There’s just something about the atmosphere in the library that really motivates me to learn! If you like your privacy, you can also get a personal study room here.
- Center for Student Life – This is a great place to go if you like to study with friends. There’s lots of seating options that are perfect for you and your study buddies. I can’t wait for the green space to be complete so I can hang out and study outside!
Here at UF, we are so lucky to be able to have options when it comes to studying spaces. There’s something for everyone. It’s up to you to find your favorite!
