Gardner-Webb’s campus has several places to get away and crack down on some of that homework you need to get done. It’s tempting to hang out with people and forget about your work, but there are some spots on campus where you can do both!
1. The Library
As the designated quiet area on campus, the library is probably the most obvious study space. What you may not know is that the basement of the library is one of the best places to go if you really need complete silence. The basement of the library is usually less crowded than other parts of the building, and has desks in the very back that are perfect to sneak away to. The study rooms on the top floor are great for group work as well.
2. Tucker Student Center
The Tucker Student Center is a great place to eat, hang out with friends, and study, though it’s not the most quiet place on campus. If you like to work and socialize, this is the place for you, but the study rooms on the top floor are a better option if you want a quiet place that’s still close to food and other people. This is great for longer study sessions, , because you can walk down a flight of stairs to grab some food if you get hungry.
3. The DCC
There are some tables and couches in the Dover Campus Center that are perfect for studying in the middle of a busy day. If you’re in between classes and don’t want to walk all the way back to your room, this small space is a convenient alternative. It’s also right next to Chick-fil-A if you need a quick bite to eat.
4. Your Room
While its certainly not glamorous, your room can be an ideal study space. I like to be social once I’ve left my room, so I take advantage of the time I do spend there to get work done. Hopefully you’ll be lucky enough to have a roommate who feels the same way so that you are able to study together!
It’s surprising how many students you will find sitting on a blanket studying in the middle of the quad during the fall and spring. It is so beautiful outside some days that even homework can’t stop you from taking it all in. Sometimes, the best way to get work done is a change of scenery.
