Since I am in my fourth year at USC, I have done my fair share of studying both on and around campus. Each semester, I have my favorite spots that are my “go-to” study spots.
Generally, what I look for in a study spot is 1) quietness, since I do much better with no distractions, 2) comfyness, since I am there for long stretches of time, and 3) close proximity to where I am most of the time, since I like having short commutes. Some semesters, I am on campus all the time, and so I have great study spots on campus. Other semesters, I have certain time blocks that allow me to be at home more often, and in those instances I study at home more often.
This semester, my favorite study spot is my house, more specifically the bowl chair on my front porch! I got this bowl chair from my friend at the end of last semester for free! And I found the perfect place for it on my front porch! It is in a pretty secluded area, so there are few distractions, save for the occasional run-in with my neighbor’s cats. It’s nice because it’s shaded but also gives me the opportunity to get a bunch of fresh air! Since LA doesn’t get chilly until later in the semester, I can still study there.
Aside from that, I love to study at my kitchen table! I have so much table space at my disposal, so I can spread out my stuff.
Anyways, these are the places that I have found myself at the most this semester, to study and do work. I hope you find the study spot that’s most perfect for you!
Talk to you guys next week!
