People, Study Places, and Pines!
Students at Dartmouth have an amalgamation of spots on campus where they prefer to study for their exams. In this post, I will discuss my favorite study spots on campus and my opinions on finding the perfect study space!
- No. 1
The Tower Room
This study spot is an interesting choice for me because some students refer to it as the “Harry Potter Room”. Located in Baker Library, the Tower Room has a dark academia ambience with dim lighting and a historic feel with books donned across the shelves and wooden armchairs. I admire the easily accessible chargers and the quiet aura of the room, allowing students to fully focus on their schoolwork.
- No. 2
Third Floor of Berry Library, otherwise known as 3FB, is the third floor in the Baker-Berry library. From the first floor of the library to the fourth floor, the noise levels casually decrease. For example, if you are working on a group project or studying with your friends, you may go to the first floor (FFB) where you can chat in front of others in a respectful manner. If you have an important exam that you need to study for in peace, you would go to the fourth floor (4FB). The floor has complete and utter silence, causing timidity at the slightest of sounds. The third floor (3FB) is my favorite because there are many areas where I can choose to study- the couches, alcoves with charging ports, and spacious desks with good lighting. Additionally, the noise levels are reasonable when I have assignments I need to complete.
- No. 3
Group Study Rooms
My last favorite study spots are the group study rooms in 3FB (the third floor of the Berry library) and 4FB (the fourth floor of the Berry library). Though this is an interesting preference, I admire the view outside the windows (look at that rainbow!) within these study rooms, and the secluded feel of the rooms prevents me from acquiring any distractions while being able to talk at a decent volume inside.

Today, I interviewed Gabe Gottesman. He is a '26 and an economics major who runs a podcast called "Big Green Economics," about the economics research professors and students are pursuing at Dartmouth.
