My Favorite Fall Study Spots
As I am wrapping up my first set of midterms in college, I've gotten very familiar with what study spots work for me. Here are some of my favorites!
- No. 1
Sherman Art Library
Sherman Art Library is my go-to place whenever I need to crank out an essay for my philosophy class or do my Latin homework. There are two rooms in Sherman—an outer room with several desks overlooking large windows and the wonderful view of campus, a couple of larger tables, and a cluster of cozy armchairs; and an inner room, with its sprawling bookshelves, high ceiling, fireplace, and even more tables lined besides large windows. The aesthetic of the inner room, which is where I normally work, really adds to my productivity! I’ve gotten the most work done for my humanities classes in this quiet space.
- No. 2
Whereas Sherman is my favorite spot for humanities work, Feldberg is my go-to study spot for working on my STEM classes. Inside, you will find a quiet environment, a ton of cubicles, large wooden tables, and sprawling bookshelves. A cubicle with a sun lamp is the perfect spot for working on some code for a problem set.
- No. 3
Brittle, as we affectionally call it, is the common room for Brown and Little, which are two of Dartmouth's first year dorms! As someone who lives in one of those dorms, I have access to Brittle. Brittle has a spacious nature and includes a kitchen, a piano, a TV, many comfortable armchairs and beanbags, an assortment of large tables and chairs, and huge windows that cover pretty much every side of the wall! I like to sit on one of the larger tables and get some homework done in the evenings, letting the conversations and chatter surround me.
- No. 4
Sometimes, my default study spots don’t work out. For example, some may be too quiet, and others may be extremely full! The latter was the case earlier this week, with everyone clamoring to the libraries to study for their midterms. Luckily, my friends and I wandered around and found an empty classroom to study in. It was a blast!
