Starbucks Drinks for Any Time of the Day That Are a Guaranteed A+

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

As August nears an end, every college student knows that those 8 a.m. classes and late night study sessions are making their return. The days are about to be full of classes, work, seeing friend, and all of the other responsibilities we’ve been slacking on over the summer.

While the days may be long and stressful, The Ohio State University students will be happy to know that on their very own campus, the Starbucks Pickup location at Neil Ave and 11th has been named one of the most visit-worthy locations on college campuses across the country! It’s been recognized for the efficient, smooth-running experience and features a status board so you can track your order live as it is being made. It’s the perfect stop while you’re running to class.

But what on Earth should you order? Here are some of the best Starbucks drinks for any time of the day to help get all students through the busy semester!

For those early morning classes, everyone can use a little kick of caffeine to get the day started off. Some of my favorite morning drinks are a Caramel Macchiato or a Nitro Cold Brew. With lots of caffeine and a little bit of sweetness, it’s the perfect way to start the day off right. Additionally, for the students that are not big caffeine drinkers, a blended Strawberry Lemonade is a fan favorite.

After conquering that morning fatigue, everyone deserves to reward themselves with a refreshing drink. For those afternoon days filled with library visits, club meetings, studying, or lounging with friends on the Oval, I recommend a lighter iced tea or refresher. Some of the best drinks include a Strawberry Acai Lemonade, a Dragon Drink or an Iced Chai Tea Latte. They are thirst quenching and the prettiest drinks at Starbucks!

Something that many students know all to well is that, especially during exam season, working late into the evening while studying for tests and working on homework is not unusual. The days are long, and sometimes it’s hard to fight that evening exhaustion after a hard day. Drinks such as a Black Tea Lemonade or Matcha Green Tea Latte are perfect choices of drinks with enough caffeine to keep students awake when work has to get done, but still be able to sleep during the night.

Feeling thirsty? Check out the Starbucks Pickup location at Neil Ave and 11th for your pick-me-up. You’ll thank us later!
