Video: What's the Best College Study Spot?

What's the best place to study in college? That's really up to you. But Andy's here to show you the pros and cons of three popular study spots on campus.

Finding a place on campus you feel comfortable studying is extremely important to your success as a college student. But where’s the best place on campus to study? Andy checked out a few places on the University of Kentucky campus to help you figure out where you might study best. Check out the video below!

Campus coffee shop

Nothing pairs better with cramming for a test than a caramel mocha—but is a coffeehouse the best place to study? It’s a good place to go if you require caffeine and pastries to help you focus, but you may have a bit of trouble finding a spot during busy periods. And the espresso machine alone might knock you off your game if you’re distracted by loud noises.

Library

You might think the library is the obvious choice for where to study. But is it? Friends, noisy patrons, and lack of space in quiet areas might make studying more difficult in the library. Explore different areas to see what works for your before committing to one spot—and maybe leave your friends behind if you need to focus.

Your dorm room

Your dorm room might be a good place to study if you can remove all the inherent distractions. If you’re good about making sure you stick to the task at hand, your dorm room might be the perfect place to study. It’s private, quiet (or as quiet as you want it to be), and comfy. But if you can’t make your dorm room the perfect study space, you may want to consider a new location.

CollegeXpress has helped me in many ways. For one, online searches are more organized and refined by filtering scholarships through by my personal and academic interests. Due to this, it has made searching for colleges and scholarships significantly less stressful. As a student, life can already get stressful pretty quickly. For me, it’s been helpful to utilize CollegeXpress since it keeps all of my searches and likes together, so I don’t have to branch out on multiple websites just to explore scholarship options.

It's an honor for me to be writing to share a little about my experience with CollegeXpress. I've been using CollegeXpress for about a year now, and the reason why I chose it is because it provides astonishing scholarships for every student around the globe. Besides that, this organization dispenses all the information necessary to help students get to college. CollegeXpress has helped me have an easier experience with applying to colleges and choosing the best fit for myself.

I discovered CollegeXpress while embarking on my college search journey as an excited—but scared and way confused—high schooler without a counselor or college-bound sibling to give me advice. Let me tell you, I’m so glad that I stumbled on this community! CollegeXpress helped me find potential colleges and keep application deadlines straight. It gave me a great list of scholarships, and the blogs and emails made me feel like I wasn’t going it alone. Almost three years later and with freshman year of college down, I still love the CollegeXpress vibe so much that I’m writing for them. I’d recommend this site to anyone!
