With school back in swing, I have started to get back into the habit of using my free time to study and get homework done. This is a hard task to get used to again, but having the right atmosphere definitely helps. I’m someone that loves studying in coffee shops, but I also like it to be quiet when I have a lot of reading to do. I have a wide range of places I like to study based on what I have to do so I compiled a list of my absolute favorite spots in Eau Claire to hit the books at.
1. The Cabin
The coffee shop in Davies, The Cabin, is one of my favorite places on campus. I love that the aura of the shop is so peaceful with the colorful lights, warm fireplace, and cozy chairs. It’s a great spot to work on a paper or finish an assignment at.
2. 4th Floor of McIntyre Library
If I need to concentrate on a really long reading or study for a difficult exam, I head straight to the 4th floor of the library. It’s the perfect spot to make sure I stay focused on homework and studying. If you haven’t studied there yet, I’d definitely recommend it.
3. Racy D'Lene's Coffee Lounge
Another coffee shop that I love to study at is Racy’s. It has such a relaxing and chill vibe, which is perfect for reading, finishing assignments, and studying for exams. I could spend all day at Racy’s doing homework and it wouldn’t seem so bad.
4. 2nd Floor of Phillips Hall
I personally haven’t checked out the 2nd Floor of Phillips Hall, but I heard from a friend of mine that it’s an awesome study spot. It’s quiet and hardly anybody walks by so it’s easy to stay focused on whatever you’re doing. It is definitely a spot that I will be checking out!
I love Starbucks so of course it is one of my favorite places to do homework at. Starbucks has an atmosphere that is perfect for getting stuff done. I went there almost once a week last year because I always got so much done and was able to mostly concentrate on my homework. The good coffee is also a bonus!
