The 5 Best Study Spots on MSU’s Campus

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at MSU chapter.


1. The main library during off-hours

When it’s not finals week or it’s a time when most people don’t feel like studying (i.e. Friday nights), the main library is a fantastic place to get work done. There’s an infinite number of cozy study areas available, and it’s so ridiculously quiet that even whispering sounds too loud.


2. The Union

The Union is a prime spot for studying, mostly due to its proximity to coffee and snacks (not to mention Dairy Store ice cream). Pretty much any craving you have while flipping through your physiology notes can be satisfied without having to pack up your books and move. It’s generally nice and quiet too, so getting work done shouldn’t be a problem.


3. The study lounge in your dorm

Sometimes after a long day, no one feels like leaving their hall just to study. For times like these, your dorm study lounge should serve you well. Some halls have it better than others, fully equipped with comfy couches and TVs. These areas double as social spaces, making it a great opportunity to meet others on your floor.


4. Adam’s Field

In early fall semester and late spring semester, Adam’s Field is the prime study spot. Besides being one of the most beautiful areas of campus, you’re also just steps away from the Union if you’re craving some ice cream or coffee.


5. Your room

Sometimes your own room really is the best place for studying. Chilling in your pjs with a steaming cup of tea on your futon might just be the ideal way for you to get some work done.

Bekkah Baldwin is a sophomore at Michigan State University and is still undeclared but thinking about majoring in Neuroscience or Psychology with a minor in German. She loves to write, loves her school, and loves the idea of giving young women an outlet for their voices to be heard. So HerCampus seemed like the perfect place for her. When she's not busy studying, she enjoys being the goofy person she is with her friends and watching Netflix (because who doesn't). Her favorite shows include Friends, Gilmore Girls, Parks and Rec and One Tree Hill. Reading is another hobby, as is writing the occasional FanFiction for some of her favorite 80s movies. During summer breaks she works at the movie theatre in her hometown, one of her favorite places in the world and finds herself eating popcorn and drinking slushies all day. She works as a tour guide at MSU and has never stopped being excited about having the opportunity to show off her awesome school. She's 50% German and tends to visit family in Europe once a year. She wants to study abroad for sure and travel the world long after her college days are over. College was a wonderful transition, a place where she instantly felt she belonged and found her best friends, and she can't wait to see what this year as part of the HerCampus team will bring. Go Green!
