Your Study Environment

An Adviser's Top Three Suggestions

Help on Campus

Good places to study may be your residence hall rooms, quiet lounges in your hall and all the libraries on campus. In addition to these, individual departments may have quiet library/study space for students in their majors. Check out the campus and find the space that’s just right for you.

You may also wish to participate in a study group for a particular class. Good ways to do this are to form one with classmates, participate in one organized through your residence hall or participate in a Learning Resources Center study group.
