There are so many different study lounges on the Jamestown Campus! Whatever building you’re in, there’s always a quiet place that you can go to study or read or just relax. Several of these lounges are more than just a classroom set aside; many are in really interesting and unique locations!
1. Science Loft
This is one of my favorite study locations on campus. Located on the second floor of the new Science Center, this study lounge overlooks the whole entry way of the building. It features a large window that lets in a lot of natural light, and is just a really cool place to sit and study. I enjoy coming to study here even when I’m not taking a science class!
2. Hultquist Study Areas
There are many different study nooks on the second floor of the Hultquist Building, which is perfect if you’re somebody who likes to change up the scenery when you’re studying. And with a change in location comes a change in seating. From comfy chairs and couches, to study tables and not-as-comfy but still perfectly good hard backed chairs, you have plenty of choices. As an added bonus, all of these lounges feature a lot of really interesting artwork!
3. Quiet Lounge
The quiet lounge is located in the COCE building. This study lounge is meant just for silent studying, so this room is always an option if you’re one of those students who work best in near complete sensory deprivation. In addition to the required study furnishings (tables, chairs, lights), there’s also more artwork, allowing you to ponder humankind’s creative impulse when you get tired of pondering what’s an accurate standard deviation for the data set in problem 8 of your statistics assignment. The high ceilings and large windows give the space a really open feel. It’s a great space for some peace and quiet!
4. The Pit
The Pit is located in the middle of Hultquist Library. Despite the foreboding name, it’s just a really fun and comfy place to read and study. Carpeted all around with cushions to relax on, it’s a really inviting space. The floor even has a slight bounce to it, making the Pit more like a carnival attraction than a study area! OK, maybe that’s exaggerating things a bit, but it’s still a nice touch and makes the space just that much better.
So those are my top picks. What are yours? Where do you go when you need to get stuff done?
