Best places to study on Illinois State’s campus

Students study on the Quad under a tree

Illinois State University students study on the Quad during fall semester.

The Atrium at the Bone Student Center, or a hidden corner in Milner Library?

Uptown Normal’s Coffeehouse and Deli, or Uptown Normal’s Coffee Hound?

DeGarmo Hall basement, or DeGarmo courtyard?

Illinois State University’s freshmen students will no doubt find their own favorite spots on campus to study. But the STATEside crew thought we’d give them a hand by asking returning students and alumni to share their favorite study spots and why. Here’s what you had to say, with help from Storify.

3rd floor of the Bone has to be my favorite. It's never busy, and crazy quiet. Depending on what time of day it is, the sunlight either coming in or setting is nice too.
