Best Study Spots!
Finding a good study space is one of the most important parts of studying effectively. Sometimes schoolwork gets hard and stressful, so you want to make sure you're in an environment that makes studying easier and more fun. I spent a lot of my first week exploring different spaces on campus to find the perfect study spot, and I found that there are so many places on campus where you can get work done.

Sanborn library, home to Dartmouth’s English department is one of the most beautiful study spaces on campus. It’s almost too easy to get lost in the intricate wood columns, iron railings and leather cushioned chairs and forget about the work you actually set out to do. Sanborn is great for when you need to be in a quiet space to get a lot of work done. Pro-tip: get a seat by the window so you can sit in natural light as you work.

Berry Study Rooms
I think these rooms are some of the most underrated spots on campus. These are rooms where groups of people can come together to collaborate on projects they are working on together. There are several study rooms in various buildings all over campus, but my favorites are the ones on the first floor of berry library. There are whiteboards so you can write stuff down to help you learn or perhaps explain something to a friend. There are also large tv/monitors you can use for slideshows and presentations. I usually study with other people, so these rooms are really helpful when you want to study in a group but don’t want to be noisy and distract other people.

There’s nothing quite like studying right at the center of campus, surrounded not only by nature, but also by other members of the Dartmouth community. The green is one of my favorite study spots because you get to see how much of a hub of activity this campus is, while also being able to sit back and get some work done. It’s never so noisy that you wouldn’t be able to concentrate, neither is it too quiet that it would make you fall asleep. It’s the perfect combination of activity and calm natural vibes.
