Where to Study

In college, you may find yourself in the occasional dilemma of where to study. Some might suggest that you study wherever your friends are studying. Some will say they have the perfect location that they will never stray from. Others may not even consider location at all. During my freshman year, I found that I could never study well with others or alone in my residence hall room. I always liked to have a spacious location where I felt comfortable enough to really focus on my work.

As my first semester in college went along, I found a place that I considered the best location for studying. I enjoyed studying at the Ikenberry Library since it was so close to Snyder Hall, the residence hall that I lived in my freshman year. I would go to the library for hours and enjoy plenty of studying success. It is a quiet environment with fantastic lighting.

You’ll only find the perfect place for studying if you try out a ton of different places and situations. Don’t be afraid to fail, and keep an open mind to what might work really well. If you’re seeing good results on exams after studying at certain locations, stick with what works. Location truly does matter when it comes to studying. Take location seriously and your study game will go to the next level.
