Tufts has many places on-campus where you can study and some of them have beautiful views. I like exploring the campus to find places I could study. For me, I like matching the study location ~vibes~ with the work I am doing. So, I have a different place where I do my STEM oriented assignments and humanities orientated assignments. I’m going to be sharing some of the popular places to study on-campus, but there are also many places you can study off-campus like the Boston Public Library.
When people think of studying, I think the library comes to mind. Tufts has three libraries on-campus–Tisch Library, Ginn Library (part of the graduate school), and the Lilly Music Library. They all have different ~vibes~. First, the Tisch Library is the most popular because it is bigger than the other two and I think it is the main library. Both undergraduate and graduate students as well as visitors use this library. There are tons of resources and study space! My favorite place is the reading room and the basement study areas. The Ginn Library is in the Fletcher School which is the graduate school, but both undergraduates and graduate students can study there. I used to go to the Ginn Library when I lived uphill since it was closer than the other two. It is a lot more quiet and serious in terms of the vibes compared to the rest of the libraries on-campus. Lastly, the Lilly Music Library is smaller and it is usually not full of people. So, if you live downhill or love the Granoff Music Center, you might want to check it out!
Besides the libraries on-campus, there are a lot of other places students study. Some of the popular places include the Campus Center, the SEC (Science and Engineering Complex), and Eaton. The Campus Center is usually very lively, so it might be a good spot if you are not a library type of person. The SEC is aesthetically pleasing and it can be convenient if you have a lab for a class in the SEC. Eaton–sometimes referred to as the Eaton Computer Lab–is helpful if you do not have your own computer because there are plenty of computers there you can use. Also, it has huge whiteboards near the study tables that you can use. I go to Eaton when I have a class later in the building, so I do some homework and go to class which is very convenient.
These are only some of the places I know and that are also very popular. A lot of the places I mentioned here have very scenic views, especially during the fall. I think everyone has their favorite study spot on-campus. Though I am a junior, I sometimes stumble upon new places!
