Grad Library Study Carrels
Pros: Total isolation, without the distractions of the guy doing a pencil drum solo across the room. No judgemental looks when you wake up from a nap.

Cons: You will often feel that while you are inside, everyone else has contracted a flesh-eating virus and you are the sole survivor. Why bother writing that essay?

Comet Coffee
Pros: There are no outlets, which creates a sense of urgency to any assignment. Color theorists have also noted that the mint-green of Comet’s interior reduces anxiety and promotes mental clarity.

Cons: Anticipate ultra-limited seating. Prepare your best condescending glare to guilt other patrons into leaving.

Halle Library (EMU)
Pros: Private. Study. Rooms. Unreserved, and with full access to temperature control. And who doesn’t love to take a mid-study snooze in a toasty, quiet room?

Cons: Unreserved rooms means you have to get there EARLY, like maybe even 10am on a Friday. And if someone catches you alone when all the rooms are full, you might get kicked out. To be safe, squad up with those stuffed animals that normally line up at the foot of your dormroom bed. Or be ready to present all of those pokemon on your phone.

UgLi (undergrad library)
Pros: Expect your Standard Collegiate Library Experience, complete with fluorescent lights and eerie silence. You’ll conquer vast table space and secure it for 12-plus hours. Private study rooms are

available with whiteboards for “visual learners.”

Cons: Everyone– EVERYONE– will know that you’re a freshman.
Also, good luck printing anything.
