Got homework? There's a place for that

Megan Conley, Staff Writer

As the stress of classes is beginning to increase, students are finding more of their time is being devoted to studying.

While some students find themselves able to concentrate in their room or in the library, sometimes it is necessary to get a different perspective.

When you find yourself getting frustrated and stressed, hop in your car and try out one of these study locations. 


1. Waffle House, Traveler's Rest

If you find yourself having to pull an all-nighter, Waffle House in Traveler’s Rest is a good option. It’s open 24/7, and has great options on the menu for a college budget.

Waffle House is a good place to study with someone else. Because they don’t have Wi-Fi, I don’t get distracted as easily. Also the coffee and waffles are really good.

2. Cookout, Cherrydale

Milkshakes are always a good cure for stress, and Cookout certainly has tons. With the lively atmosphere and affordable food, this is a great alternative to your dorm room. 

I like studying at Cookout because they have good food and milkshakes and also stay open late.

3. Coffee Underground, downtown Greenville

If you don’t mind driving into downtown Greenville, then Coffee Underground on Main Street is a great study location. It has tables, couches and separate rooms that make for a quiet place to get work done. 

Coffee Underground has a very unique blend of isolation and fellowship that enables me to study to my best ability.

4. Due South, Taylors

If you get most of your studying done during the day, Due South may be a great location for you. With lots of open space, it’s a great place to clear your head and get work done. 

The atmosphere at midday is quiet. It’s a different view than campus. It has a lot of natural light and windows.

5. Chick-fil-A, Cherrydale

Chick-fil-a is a great restaurant, but it is also a nice place to study. The establishment is equipped with outlets around the walls to ensure your laptop won’t go dead and, for the month of February, it has free coffee. 

It’s a Christian environment with good food and free Wi-Fi.
