Everyone always asks me what my favorite places on campus are. Narrowing down my favorite spots to just a few is tough, but here it goes!
For studying, my go-to place has to be Doheny Library. I think a lot of people overlook it because it is such a staple on our campus, but it’s so beautiful, I love it! During finals, they extend the hours until 2 in the morning, which is great for me because it forces me to stop studying after 2am and get some sleep. When I’m studying, I like to be surrounded by people and in a space that makes me happy, and Doheny just has really good vibes for that.
When I’m in the mood for something quick to eat, I love to go to Nekter. I can place my order on my phone and then in between classes, I just stop by and pick it up. I usually go for a classic berry smoothie, but my friends like to get acai bowls too! Nekter uses all good quality ingredients and it’s so refreshing being able to pick up a cool smoothie on my way to class.
If I’m on campus but I’m not eating and I’m not studying, I usually like to go to Founder’s Park to relax. As long as they aren’t filming something in front of Bovard, it’s usually pretty quiet during the day. Since the weather is almost always mild and sunny, I can sit on a bench and answer my emails or lay on the grass for a little while until my next class starts.
I also can’t leave out my ALL TIME favorite spot on campus….. LEMONADE! In case you can’t tell by my other blog posts or my Instagram, I’m obsessed with Lemonade. I lived near a Lemonade in North Hollywood over the summer and that’s where my addiction began. Any time I have enough time to sit down and eat, I always go there. You just can’t beat the vegetarian/vegan options and of course their amazing lemonade. Their food is so weird but so good and it fills me with happiness. If you’re in LA and you’ve never tried Lemonade, you need to check it out!
