Just a heads up: classes are going to get stressful, and we deal with that in different ways. Some will dredge through the night, cramming for tests. Some will waste their study time complaining on Twitter. And others? Well, they’ll just get sloshed and go to parties to forget their obligations.
Under the pressure of all that studying, whining and drunkenness, you might need a break. Here are just a few places where you can go and likely find a bit of rest — or, you know, not get shipped to the drunk tank.
When the fountain reopens this semester, students will once again be able to lie in the grass and snooze undisturbed. It’s not uncommon to see, among the hipsters making flower necklaces, plenty of planked individuals with their butts turned to the sky.
If you don’t want to wait for the grand reopening, there’s still the lawn left outside the fence. Although the scenery might not be as peaceful, it will still feel quiet enough for some shut-eye. And, then again, you’ll likely be wasted, so does it really matter?
The Legacy Lounge
If you’re not a fan of sweating and snoozing, take a trip to the Student Center South. While other students might be working diligently on class projects or papers, you can find solace in the comfort of the chairs and sofas.
If you want to take a group nap, grab a few friends and ask the desk for a key to a study room. Turn out the lights and catch a few Zs without interruption.
The Burnout Wall
Students, you’ve seen it. On the backside of the Social Work building, facing the Satellite and the Valenti School of Communication, where students lean against the wall for support in trudging through the swamp of Finals Week.
So kick back, relax and knock out for a few minutes…or hours…or days. It may not beat your grandmother’s couch, but it’s a nice place to sleep.
