Sunday, September 26, 2021 STUDY SPOTS: Discover these shady outdoor locales under the trees
While you may be used to studying in the library or your room, the change of the season and the cooling temps make the the outdoors a wonderful place to study. This list of spots around campus will help you find your perfect location to open your laptop and books under the colorful foliage.
- Expansive tree-filled Maxwell Arboretum at East Campus, found between the Food Industry Complex and the College of Dentistry.
- Pocket park at 16th and R Streets with shady trees and benches near the Kappa Delta and Pi Beta Phi houses.
- Tables outside Love Library North offer sweeping views of campus, nearby Dunkin' coffee, and a bit of shade for warmer days.
- Park-like garden space between the Sheldon Museum of Art and Architecture Hall, dotted with nearby art and sculptures.
- North of the Lied Center for Performing Arts, a maze of wood benches covered by a densely-planted tree grove give the feeling of hiding inside a shrub in which to study.
- R Street "green belt" set along the sidewalk between the Nebraska Union and the Sheldon Museum of Art. The two-block area abuts the south facades of Canfield Administration Building, Love Library, and Louise Pound Hall and is interspersed with sidewalks, gardens, and towering trees. A great spot to view the rare black squirrels.
