The 5 Best Places To Study For Finals At Tulane
Elana Israeli

With finals coming into full affect, studying seems to be the only activity that is taking place on campus. The Boot is basically vacant and the frats are dry. The entire student body is solely focused on their exams and papers due in the coming week. For me, one of the most important components of studying is the location. I tend to work best in an environment free of distractions, but can still have some background noise. All semester I have been trying out different locations for my studies, seeing what works best for me. I came to a conclusive top five locations for studying on and around Tulane's campus.

1. Howie T

"Howie T" is the street name for the library on Tulane's Campus, Howard Tilton Memorial Library. There are six floors and a basement, and they are all set up completely different. Each floor has its "regulars" who can study and do their work best in the environment and atmosphere of that floor. I have recently discovered that floor five is my favorite floor in Howie T, with large, open tables and wooden cubicles.

2. Grad B-School

The Graduate Business School is located in the Goldring II building. With its prime location in between the LBC and Sharp Hall, it makes for the perfect place to get working. There are comfortable chairs, classrooms, and meeting rooms that you can occupy to do your work. I find it one of the places that I am most productive in my studying because of the lack of distractions there.

3. LBC

The LBC houses tons of desks, chairs, and tables that make for the perfect place to get work done with a friend or study in some quiet. Because of the various areas of the LBC that have different desk setups, there is room to move between a quiet environment and a talking environment. Group work is able to be done there since there are no silence barriers, while still being able to focus and avoid distractions.

4. Common Rooms

With all the other buildings around campus designated to doing work and studying, residence hall common rooms often get overlooked. Most of the time I leave my dorm to go do work in Howie T, the Grad B-School, or the LBC, but if I am not in the mood to leave, I look for a common room to set up shop.

5. Starbucks/PJs

With a Starbucks on Loyola's campus and two PJs on Tulane's campus, there are plenty of coffee shop options for people to get work done at. With their widely known reputation for being the perfect place to sit down and work while having a cup of coffee, Starbucks and PJs make for the easiest and most accessible places to grab a seat, a coffee, and get busy.

Good luck to everyone with your upcoming final exams and papers, and remember that it is all going to be worth it in the end!

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
