Classes have suddenly gotten a lot harder and the workload has increased by at least double. With midterms coming up it’s the perfect time to find a great place to study at or around campus. I know that I struggle studying at home, mostly because my “studying” evolves into watching several hours of Netflix and then falling asleep. While stress relieving, it’s not really the most productive use of my time. So here are some great study options in Fort Collins!
1. The basement of the Morgan Library
If you’re looking for a truly quiet place to study the basement of Morgan Library is the place for you. There are plenty of seating options and it’s really easy to focus.
2. Momo Lolo’s Coffeehouse
Momo Lolo’s is the perfect place to study if you’re looking for somewhere to also get a cup of coffee. Their coffee is great and the happy atmosphere is wonderful if you’re planning on staying for a couple hours.
3. The Kindness Lounge in the Lory Student Center
The Kindness Lounge is a great place to study if you’ve got an hour or two in between classes and don’t feel like going home. It’s right next to the food court if you’re hungry but separated enough that there’s not too much noise. And as an added bonus there are comfy chairs, big glass windows and a fireplace.
4. The cafe in the Behavioral Sciences Building
This is also perfect is you have a short amount of time before class or if you feel like getting to campus a little bit early. The coffee shop has great deals on drip coffee (especially if you bring your own cup) and there dividers between the tables and couches so that you won’t feel like you’re in a super crowded area. But if you go early it is pretty much empty.
5. The patio area outside of Eddy
Now that Eddy is finally finished, the kind of awkward patio area located in the middle of the building is a great place to study in the afternoon. The sun hits the tables just right so that at this time of year it’s still warm enough to study outside.
6. Wild Boar Cafe
Wild Boar Cafe, which is right off College next to the University Center for the Arts, is a great place to study on weekend mornings. It’s pretty quiet, they have great chai and they also serve breakfast!
7. The Oval
The Oval is a great place to sit and study on a nice fall day. It’s quiet, the trees are beautiful and there’s a really high chance you’re going to get a study break in the form of petting a really cute dog.
