7 Best Study Spots On MSU Campus

Finals will be here soon, and studying will be our main priority. Try out these places to study on campus.

7 Best Study Spots On MSU Campus

Don't stress this semester about your roommates being loud or your wifi at your apartment not working. These are the best places on campus to study for finals this semester.

Mitchell Memorial Library

Whether you are at a computer or in a study room, Mitchell Memorial has tons of places to choose from to study. There are several floors and as you go up at floor level, the spaces are quieter. There are couches and chairs for comfort, and there are computers and printers for crunch time. Plus, the library stays open 24 hours during finals week.

Chapel of Memories

This is such a quiet and peaceful place to relax and unwind. Because it is so quiet, students can come here and pick a pew to study hard. The views are wonderful at sunrise and sunset because all of the colors on the windows come through to make the place your own personal sanctuary.

McCool Hall

McCool Hall is such a nice updated place with large rooms for groups and smaller rooms for just yourself. McCool is perfect to cram for a test or get that last assignment done during finals. Even if you aren't a business major, you can still come to McCool to study for your tests or get your projects done.

Colvard Student Union

This can be noisy if you are on the main floor in the common area. However, if you go into the Dawg House on the first floor or go up to either the second or third floor, things calm down a bit and you can really concentrate on what is at hand. Plus, whenever you need a food or coffee break, you have options on the first floor.

Old Main Academic Center

This new and improved facility is a nicer option for people on the north side of campus, or for anyone in general who needs a quiet place to study. This building has some study rooms and lots of classrooms, and just like the library, the higher floor you pick, the quieter it gets. Also, there is a printing lab and a P.O.D. on the first floor for convenience.

Barnes & Noble Bookstore

This might seem like a long shot, but hear me out. There is a Starbucks inside, with comfy tables and chairs for students to use. If you like the coffee shop feel while studying, but you don't want to leave campus, Barnes & Noble is for you. They aren't open 24 hours a day, but you could still cram during the daytime hours and enjoy your coffee.

Your Major's Building

Whatever your major is, find the building that your department is located in. Check to see if there are any study rooms or classrooms that could be used during finals. The plus side to this is that if you are studying in your academic major's building, there are likely to be people in the same major or classes that you could ask questions.

Wherever you study, make sure you do. Finals can seem overwhelming, but when you finally finish the semester and get to go home, the reward is even better.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
