Since I am a Civil Engineering (Building Science) major, I take a studio class in the architecture school every semester. This causes me to spend a lot of time at the architecture school! One of my favorite study spots on campus is the Helen Topping Architecture and Fine Arts library, which is located in the basement of Watt Hall. I definitely think this is an underrated study spot because not many people know it exists besides architecture students. However, the architecture students don’t spend much time in the library because they are working on their projects at their desks in studio. Every time I have come to study here it is almost empty!
What is great about the Architecture and Fine Arts library is there are large tables, making it really easy to spread out and fit your computer and books. There are also plenty of plugs near every table so it is always possible to charge your computer. They have desktop computers built in with plenty of programs like Adobe Acrobat, which is great for making PDFs. They even have scanners, printers, and a copier so you can take care of any assignments!
Finally, I think one of my favorite parts of the library is all the models on display. There are tons of models of houses, towers, and buildings on display around the library. The models are a great way to take a quick study break because you can get up, walk around, and look at something interesting!
With my second round of midterms coming up, I will definitely be spending a lot of time studying! Fight on!Meet Kelly
