    I like the Droste Den in Gerdin.

    During the spring...Central Campus...

    Right now...I have no idea because I'm unfamiliar with this concept of "study"

    Library Basement is always empty. Or the 4th floor of the library.

    Definitely one of the side towers in the library. There are tables running along both walls the whole way and NO ONE ever goes in there. I took many a good nap in those towers.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    4th floor of the library, in a desk with a power outlet. It's even good during finals week, except most of the spots are usually taken. But it's almost always quiet.

    Great minds think alike. I used to go to the 4th floor a lot more often but I don't like stairs, so I just go to the basement anymore. Many of the stuff written on the back walls in the basement may or may not have been written by me.

    I started going to the basement after I got tired of all those stairs to get to the 4th floor as well.

    Re: Best study spots on campus

    4th floor library was a spot I used on occasion. I also used 106B in Town when I had keys to it. I also got pretty good at studying in TEB 220 despite how noisy and busy it could occasionally get in there.

    yeah and only the asians use them.

    my favorite spot is on the 3rd floor south side by the windows. problem is, it is hard to get an outlet. also i like studying in tier 2, in the corner by the door. i hate studying along the wall in the tiers, because it is too quiet, and usually way too hot or cold.

    Sun room(?) at the MU. Get your daily dose of UV rays and it's usually pretty quite. Lots of windows to look out when you're spacing off.

    Didn't the semester just start? Why on Earth are you studying already? Finals aren't for months!
