We asked our writing staff to pick their favorite spot on campus, with a few days remaining before the campus becomes too cold to support human life.

The basement level of Lockwood is nice. Especially when it’s been raining like the last couple days. There’s a yellow decay on the windows and the plants outside make the light that comes in a mossy color.

The tables outside of Starbucks are a great place to sip coffee and people watch, catch up with friends, contemplate dropping out of college, and enjoy the lively buzz of campus. They’re also also a great place to force yourself to get work done – where better to finish assignments than the heart of campus with some liquid motivation and sweet treats?

My friends and I tend to frequent the third floor of Lockwood. It’s a welcoming environment with comfortable furniture, and a great place to talk openly with friends, which usually leads to no work being done…

My favorite outdoor spot on campus is Baird Point. Not ideal for doing homework, but it’s a perfect spot to look over campus and Lake La Salle with your friends. Also, Fall Fest made Baird a great place for concerts!

I’ve always loved Letchworth Woods, next to Ellicott. It’s a nice spot to clear your head, take a short hike to the creek, and pretend for a minute you’re out in the wildnerness and not surrounded on all sides by overcrowded parking lots.
