Well, we’ve finally made it to November, and the slow ascent to finals is now upon us. Maybe you’ve felt a lot more pressure lately, and you feel like you need to take a second and get away to a nice, quiet place where you can read a book or contemplate life outside of academics. When your room just doesn’t do the job, it’s good to just step outside and find a spot to slip away for a while.
Here are a few on-campus places to get away and take a second to breathe.
There are plenty of places in the arboretum to run off to and enjoy a few peaceful hours. Read a book under a nice tree, or find a patch of grass and have a picnic. Just be safe and don’t go there at night, okay?
The quietest of the quads, try venturing to McCorkle and relax for a while. In the evenings, you may be able to hear people playing the piano or practicing vocals in one of the rehearsal halls. It might also be a good time to take a chance on love and sit under the Davie Poplar.
Okay, so it’s well known that Graham Memorial is a napping hotspot. If McCorkle doesn’t do the job because of the likelihood of families and children running around, find an open couch here. If for some reason you are not capable of mid-afternoon sleeping, watch how this baby hedgehog naps.
