10 Places We Would Rather Be Than Studying In Davis

10 Places On UNC's Campus We Would All Rather Be Than Trapped In Davis Library Studying Finals

Take me somewhere, anywhere but Davis.


The end of the year is here and that means it's time for work overload. As exciting as summer anticipation is, there is nothing nicer than taking a break and enjoying Chapel Hill. If procrastination is your favorite pass time, here are 10 places you can enjoy so you don't spend every second crying in Davis.

1. Getting ice cream at Mapleview

I scream, you scream....we all scream because finals are coming and all we need is ice cream and a great view.

2. Hanging with friends on Craig Deck

Overlook the campus and enjoy a spring night all while avoiding your responsibilities.

3. Soaking up the sun at Jordan Lake

Bring an Eno or a book or a football. Take a break and visit the lake.

4. Playing with a puppy on the quad

Puppies solve everything. 20 minutes with a puppy will do the same as 2 hours of studying.

5. Getting lunch at Sutton's

There is no better Chapel Hill tradition than a good hot dog at Suttons. Maybe Sutton's works as a form of finals osmosis. See friends, get good food, ace your exams.

6. Taking a day trip to the beach

I personally think I'll learn more from the ocean than from my textbook. Sounds productive to me.

7. Enjoying coffee at Perennial

Talk. Enjoy. Spend time together. Don't study. There's nothing nicer than a pretty day and the atmosphere and a good cup of coffee at Perennial.

8. Seeing a concert in Carrboro

They don't even have to be good artists, they just have to be singing, or sitting, or doing anything other than studying.

9. Rushing Franklin

Okay, so maybe basketball season is over...but I'd still rather be doing this than sitting in Davis.

10. Taking a nap

We need sleep. Doesn't that qualify as finals studying and mental health care?

Finals season is the WORST. If you really feel like you can't spend one more minute in Davis, here are 10 things you would benefit more from doing. Study hard. Play hard. Ace your finals and enjoy your summer.

10 TV Shows That Can Replace 'The Office' On Netflix By 2021



Netflix has done it again. Created a mass panic. But this time the reason is not that "Friends" is being taken down or renewed for a giant price.

No, this time it is much worse.

Netflix has said in just TWO short years, it is likely NBC will be taking 'The Office' down. I know, it is unthinkable. What else are we suppose to rewatch a hundred times and quote endlessly? You cannot simply take Michael Scott off of Netflix. The best thing to ever happen was for Netflix to put "The Office", they made it popular again. And you @ me on that. But now they are removing it. I guess we will just have to watch other shows now.

Find other shows on Netflix to watch and to fill the void that NBC is creating for us.

5 Reasons Why Staying At College For The Summer Is The Ultimate Power Move

No school, no rules, summer vacation at the best place on Earth, also known as college.


As summer begins, it brings in the joy of no more school but for most what summer really brings is the sad realization that we have to leave our favorite place and go back to our boring home town with none of our new best friends. Although some have decided to stay at college for the summer and they will soon realize why this will be the best choice that they will be making all summer.


What's better than no school, warm weather, and most importantly no one to say, "Are you just going to sleep till 2:30 p.m. every day this summer?"

1. It's like the weekend, but every day

Do you know what weekends felt like during the school year when you didn't have anything to do? No? You never had any free weekends? Wow, I'm so sorry. Well, imagine a weekend that you didn't have to do anything. Now multiply that one weekend by seven and you get seven Saturday like days where you do not have a single care in the world.

3. No "Go cut the grass!"

For the sons, you know that annoying time every week when your dad is going to say, "Go cut the grass." There is nothing you can do to get out of it. Well, staying at school for the summer means no more nagging. You get to choose what you do now.

4. The bond of friendship

The friends you make when you stay at college for the summer are different than any other bond. Mostly because you all don't have a care in the world since it's summer in your favorite place. It's a right of passage to call someone your summer college best friends. These are best friends that words wouldn't do justice.

5. The townies

Everybody always wonders what happens to a college town when all the college kids go home. Well, the townies come back in full swing and take their town back. If you stay at your college, you get to experience what most can't even describe in words. To the one mid-40s guy trying to relive his glory days. To the old men hitting on the college girls at the local pub. To the weird towny creatures that make you shiver with fright as you drive past them. Have fun townies, you only have three months.

That dream of "I wish I could just stay here at college with all these people but have no responsibilities" is finally coming true.
