It’s that time of year again. Not the holiday stretch when visions of sugar plums dance in kids’ dreams, but rather when finals are top-of-mind for most students. And with only days left until the end-of-semester gauntlet begins, Seawolves are, again, searching for the best spots to study.
In a school of more than 25,000 students, many wonder where they can find a spot to pore over a semester of lessons. While freshman may automatically gravitate toward the Frank Melville, Jr. Memorial Library’s popular reading rooms, secluded sites are the preference for upperclassmen looking to crush some last-minute cramming.
Here are the some of the best under-the-radar places we found for students to hit the books:
1. Heavy Engineering Building
Whether you’re an engineering student mastering fundamental thermodynamic theory, or just someone looking for a good place to spread out, this bright and quiet spot on the building’s second level is perfect. It even has a small kitchenette for those looking to prepare a mid-study snack.
