7 Productive Places To Study At Virginia Tech That AREN'T The Library

From Deets to Hancock.

7 Productive Places To Study At Virginia Tech That AREN'T The Library

Sometimes the library just won't do. Luckily, you have options:

1. Johnson Student Center

Johnson Student Center is great if you love smelling Subway all day long. It is great. There is a super comfy seating area on the second and first floor and if you ever need help with life just go to the Student Center and they can help you out!

2. New Classroom Building

NCB is the studying hub. There is seating everywhere, always access to an outlet and if you have a parking pass on Perry street it is super close to your car. The downsides though is that it's not close to much of anything else, for food you have to walk to Turner and if you take the bus it's also a pretty far walk. But if you want to get in some steps for the day this is the place for you.

3. Deets/DX backroom

There is a lot of seating options on the side areas of Deets and DX, not many people seem to go here and it's a pretty chill and trendy place. You can get your coffee fix, find a seat by an outlet, plug in and have a nice view out the window. Very relaxing.

4. McComass Hall

This one sounds a little odd but before a workout, if you have an assignment to do, this will be the perfect place to do it. They have tables leading up to the check-in desk and every time I have gone I have always been able to get a seat. Also, there are plugs next to the tables in case you need a charge up as well.

5. West End: Sun room

The perfect place to go when you want to grab a bite and you have some work to catch up on. The sunroom right next to the pasta and salad station is great and cheers you up since there's some great natural light. Keep in mind though that dinner rush is incredibly hectic so check it out during the off times which is basically anytime before 4.

6. Squires Student Center

Squires is another place where you can grab a bite and study at the same time. They have some great food options and three levels of seating options. When its raining try to grab a seat in the sunroom and look up it will feel like you're under a waterfall.

7. Hancock Hall

My all-time favorite place to study. Hancock is a nice calm and quiet environment to study or even take a snooze every now and then. It is one of the main engineering buildings and has some super comfy couches downstairs. There is also a cool rotunda area that not many people know about and it great if you want to be secluded.

Pop Culture Needs More Plus Size Protagonists

When almost 70% of American women are a size 14 or bigger, movies like Dumplin' are ridiculously important, while movies like I Feel Pretty just feel ridiculous.


For as long as I can remember, I've been fat. The protagonists in the movies I've watched and the books I've read, however, have not been. . .

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.


Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter. Borrowing ideas from rugby and a game he used to play as a boy, “duck on the rock”, he thought of nailing up boxes to throw a ball into. He couldn’t find boxes so he used peach baskets instead. The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.

I Met You At The Wrong Time

At least, that's what I keep telling myself.


I met you when I was in middle school and I thought boys still had cooties. I wore flared jeans, Aeropostale shirts, and had the dorkiest braces ever. I cared about what other people thought of me, and I definitely cared a lot about what you thought, too. You were older, and your friends made fun of me when I talked to you. I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.
