Top 5 Best Places to Study on Campus:
Summer I is right around the corner (literally, they start in 3 days), and summer vacation is steadily ending for some of us. Although this means we'll be getting back into the swing of school, that doesn't necessarily have to be a bad thing! We figured to make the transition from summer vacation to school easier, a few Jack Walkers could share some of their favorite study places on campus!
Of course we had to start with the most popular place to study on campus, the Ralph W. Steen Library! Summer hours for the library are listed below.
Monday - Thursday: 7:00 a..m - 9:00 p.m.
Friday: 7:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.
Saturday: 10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.
Sunday: 12:00 p.m. (noon) - 9:00 p.m.
Next we have Starbucks! We all know we'll be needing an extra boost of caffeine to start our days, so why not take a few notes up to the balcony and enjoy the summer breeze! Summer hours for Starbucks include:
Monday - Thursday: 7:30 a..m - 8:00 p.m.
Friday: 7:00 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.
The SFASU Mast Arboretum and Azalea Garden. If you have never walked the trails of the Azalea Gardens, I encourage you to do so this summer! They have several seating areas including benches and swings, all of which are perfect for some small reading. They also have beautiful scenic trails that are perfect for study break walks! You'll really gain a new appreciation for SFA after experiencing these!
Try Snuggling up in your hammock out by the Ag pond! This is a very relaxing way to finish reading up some notes or a chapter in your textbook! Also, this is the perfect spot on campus for a little down time: fishing, napping, and even Netflixing (yes, the Wifi reaches out here!) If you do not own a hammock, Walmart in Nacogdoches sells cheap outdoor hammocks in the outdoor section, so secure yours now!
Don't miss out on catching a summer tan! Go relax by the Campus Recreation pool!! We'll even provide you with a few "study by the pool" tips!
- Laminate your note cards, or conceal them in a Ziploc baggie so you can study while in the lazy river!
- Have an online class? Bring some headphones and listen to your online lecture while sunbathing!
Summer pool hours at the Campus Rec are shown below!
Monday - Thursday: 10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.
Friday: 10:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m.
