    Best places to study on campus?

    Any suggestions? (besides that zoo of a library of course) I just need some place that's well-lit and reasonably quiet.

    A hidden gem: The Multicultural Center in the MU. The person study rooms are AWESOME!

    On a side note, this dude next to me in the the library is having a very long and loud conversation. So annoying.

    Only the quality has been effected. Not quantity.

    Hidden area:

    Classrooms on the lower level of Beyer Hall. There are only 3 or 4 classes held there every day but the rooms are open and quiet. And it doesn't have wireless, whether that's good or bad is up to you.

    I like studying at Gerdin. Also, St Thomas church has a pretty good student area.

    Re: Best places to study on campus?

    The Libary always used to work best for me. I always liked the area in the middle which was almost all books. Really quiet there.

    There were too many distractions almost every other place I used to go...

    STA has the student lounge downstairs and the library upstairs. Student lounge can get a little loud though...

    I liked studying in the periodical room. Quiet in there, but not totally dead either.

    Re: Best places to study on campus?

    I liked going to Stomping Grounds. I always study w/headphones on, so I couldn't care less if it's a little noisy around me. I guess its not technically on campus, but still, its good studying...


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.
