So, to all the half a million MU alums in the world – what’s the best place to study on the campus of the University of Missouri-Columbia?
Finding a good place to study is not as easy as it seems. Even in the great hall in the library, I was interrupted by little kids voices outside (probably on a field trip) and the sounds of construction. It wasn’t terrible, but it wasn’t great, either.
There are little rooms made of chain link fence, complete with personal sets of locks and keys, on the second or third floor of the library. But alas, they are only available to graduate students.
Coffee shops? They’re okay for some type of studying, but there are far too many distractions at a place like Cherry Street Artisan – which I love – to consider it a place for serious study.
Parks can be good, but here again you never know what distractions you’ll face from other people or nature, plus it may be difficult to sustain correct and comfortable reading or writing posture over time.
So, Mizzou Alumni or residents of Columbia, Missouri: Where is the best place to study??? Does a perfect study environment even exist on this campus or in this town?
