Places to Study

With the first round of midterms here it's important to find a good place to sit down and study. Luckily at Berkeley you can find a place to get your work done no matter what your learning style and preference is. Here are some places I recommend around campus. Also, make sure to becoming a member of the PAL Facebook Fanpage and use the discussion page to let the PALs know where you like to go to study.

1. Main Stacks in Doe Library. This is my favorite place to study on campus because it's always very quiet and I can easily concentrated on my work. Also, my cell phone gets no signal there so I can't get distracted by outside things. The Doe Library is open pretty late, and during finals it's even open 24 hours. You can use either the cubicles, or there are several comfy chairs that you can sit on. Just remember to bring your Student ID Card since you'll need to show it at the desk in order to get in.

2. CNR Resource Center in 260 Mulford. This place is great for CNR students since you can sit on the couches if you want to have a more comfortable environment or use one one of the long tables to lay out all your papers and books. It's also a great place if you are doing a group project or study group since you can talk and eat/drink there. Also, the computer lab is located there so you can check your assignments online or write a paper. And if you need to print something you get 10 free pages a day as a CNR Student.

3. Free Speech Cafe. This place is nice if you like a more casual and noisy environment to study in. There are several outlets located inside so you can plug in your laptop, or if the weather is nice you can sit in the patio. Also, if you get hungry you can grab something to eat, or get some coffee to help you stay awake. :)

These are such a few of the many places you can go to at Berkeley to study. No matter where you go, make sure you spend your time wisely to review for your exams. Good luck on midterms!! :)
