“Studying”: Not just for Lauinger anymore!
First, the bad news: Vox will be blogging on a reduced schedule during study days, finals, and winter break. We’ll do our best to run three posts a day, but finals may intervene—besides, the student body just won’t be doing as many delightful and interesting things over the next few weeks as it normally does.
Now for the “good” news: as Lauinger Library will be flirting with its maximum occupancy levels for the next thirteen days, Vox has a round up of the various other study spots on campus suggested by the University and favored by Voice staffers.
Our staff suggests:
- The Car Barn. Specifically, the graduate student lounge on the second floor. Former Vox editor Juliana Brint writes has “lots of tables and couches, tons of outlets, [and] multiple vending machines. It’s got its own microwave, and it’s right near one of the nicest bathrooms on campus.” And one of those vending machines sells energy drinks.
- The Hariri Building. Aside from probably having the highest working-to-non-working outlet ratio of any building on campus, it’s shiny, clean, and within I-hope-no-one-steals-my-laptop walking distance from Uncommon Grounds and Vital Vittles.
- Off-campus wi-fi hotspots. When Georgetown just can’t hold all of us, it’s time to venture off campus to places like the Barnes and Noble on M Street, which have food, tables, and wireless.James McGrory suggested a host of wi-fi abundant locales around the District back in August, like Baked & Wired (near B & N) and Crepes-a-Go-Go. (See a trend? These places may be a bit of a hike, but they serve up delicious study snacks).
- Blommer Science Library. Located on the third floor of the Reiss Science Center.
