Maybe you’ve started packing; maybe you’re waiting until the day you leave campus. If anything, you’re likely mentally checking out for Winter Break. You can only imagine how great it’s going to be to lounge around for two weeks and (hopefully) forget about all of your responsibilities.

Therefore, finding the right study spot is critical for the sake of your fingers, toes, and nose.

So kick back, grab a Pumpkin Spice Latte, and let the inspiration find you.
