7 Study Spaces to Maximize Your Spring Semester

Sayonara, Syllabus Week!  It's time for the Spring semester to starting throwing its true punches at us, and as any upperclassman will advise you: study as far away from your bed as you can. After coming off the Fall semester, most Boilermakers know that the second greatest challenge, behind pulling an all-nighter, is where to pull it, and if you start off right, it may never be necessary! Go-to study spots like Hicks, HSSE, and WALC, are crammed all semester long, and with Greyhouse closed for renovations, here is a quick list of some study spots that will probably not be as crowded throughout the year:  

  1. The library on the 3rd floor of the Math building

  2. The Stacks in the back of HSSE’s first floor

  3. The basements of Tarkington and Wiley

  4. The 2nd and 3rd floor of Rawls  

  5. Group study spots available in CL50 1st floor, and REC 3rd floor

  6. The West Lafayette Library   (10 am to 5 pm on Sat, 1 pm to 5 pm on Sun)

  7. Vienna Coffeehouse (8 am to 12 am Sat & Sun)

Lastly, don’t be afraid to utilize empty classrooms. If the door is open and no one is in there, snatch it up before someone else does!
