Five Unique Places to Study for Final Exams

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

Finals week is that time of the semester we all dread. All of a sudden you have run out of “I’ll just do that next week,” the stress pimples are real, and the library is almost worse than a gym after New Year’s Day. After spending countless hours at the library all semester long, getting a change of scenery while studying is sometimes all you need to make your study sesh a little more bearable.


1. Daisy Moon Bakery


This hidden gem is fairly new to Morgantown, and has the perfect atmosphere to make you feel relaxed and focused. The coolest thing about it? The entire menu is gluten free! You can indulge in a tasty treat to really get your brain working.



2. Farmhouse Café


If you really want to get away from campus, this is your study spot. Their coffee & espresso bar is open 7 AM-6 PM so you’ll have no issue getting that much-needed caffeine fix.



3. The Grind


Located right around the corner from the downtown library, this cozy little coffee shop is always packed with students sipping on their Instagram-worthy cappuccinos. It’s also conveniently attached to the Book Exchange, so if your pen runs out of ink or you need some more index cards, there’s no need to panic!



4. The Evansdale Crossing


How about studying outside for a change? The Crossing offers plenty of seating on its outdoor patio so you can enjoy some fresh air and take in the Morgantown views while you work.



5. Blue Moose Café



The best place to grab a cup of coffee and dive into study mode. Set up your laptop on one of the small tables, and you’ll be focused for hours.


So, you should definitely skip the over-crowded, boring library and check out one of these awesome places to study. Go kick butt on finals, ladies!
