10 Of The Best Places To Cry... Uh, I Mean, 'Study' On MTSU's Campus

Studying in your room can get really boring and tiring. Research shows that when you study in your bed, it can keep you from sleeping because you now associate your bed with studying. In my case my body just wants to take a nap during homework because I associate it with sleep.

I am one of those people that obsesses more about where I study and what color pens I use than the actual studying, therefore I have put a lot of thought into the best places on campus to grind out your homework.

1. The Library (had to get this one out of the way first).

Obviously, the library is a great place to study with countless computer labs, reservable study rooms with computers and whiteboards, group tables, cubicles, couches, and many more options for any type of study location you can think of.

2. The Student Union. 

Specifically, upstairs on the second and third floors, there are comfy chairs for studying. It is super calm and a great place to focus in on your work.

3. The New Science Building.

In the hallways of The New Science Building, there are cubes where the walls are whiteboards. It's a cozy place to brainstorm for a group project or write notes.

4. Wiser-Patten Science Building.

When you walk into the side entrance that leads to the Wiser-Patten side of the old science building, there is a cute little study area. It is always super quiet in there with booth seating, table seating, and bar top seating. Plus, it is equipped with vending machines for some brain food.

5. Peck Hall study rooms.

Okay, I didn't know this existed until like last week, but even though Peck Hall is kind of like a prison, there are little quiet study rooms on each floor that seem like a cozy, quiet place to study.

6. The Bragg.

Home sweet home, the Bragg is a great place to study. On the first floor, there are tables for group studying. On the second floor, there are couches in front of big beautiful windows so you can study with some natural light.

7. The College of Education. 

The COE has that center area with booth seating that is cozy for a good study. The building is fairly new so it is updated and cute. It is also a good place to meet up for a group study session.

8. The KUC.

If you can study with a lot of noise then the KUC is a good place for you. You can grab some Chickfila or Pizza Hut, settle down in a booth, or hang in the couch area. It is an especially good place outside of meal hours.

9. The BAS computer lab. 

This lab is supposed to only be for business students, but it's a great place to work especially if you don't have your own computer.

10. Dorm study rooms.

If you live on campus, in some buildings each floor has a study room, and if not every complex has a computer lab. Sometimes they're shitty, but it's a quiet place to work on a computer or print something out, and a great place to meet friends in your complex for a study session.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
