The best place to study on campus

LINH NGUYEN, Evergreen reporter

With his eyes completely focused and his ear-buds jamming tunes, junior computer science major Kaveh Khorram types away on his laptop, as he finishes up his class project.

Khorram said one of his favorite study spots is the Chinook Student Center, which has been voted as the go-to study spot for students on campus.

Originally the old Bookie, the Chinook re-opened in spring 2017 after being transformed into a student center. The building offers a variety of activities, including spaces to study and socialize, as well as fitness areas, and dining options.

Although Khorram said he studies on his own at the Holland Terrell Library, he prefers to study with others at the Chinook.

“One of the disadvantages of the Holland library is that there’s only three study rooms there,” Khorram said. “The probability of there being an open room here is much higher.”

Khorram said he studies two or three times a week in the Chinook.

He said he likes to study with friends or classmates in the glass-paned study rooms because the atmosphere is a lot quieter.

“The study rooms here are great,” Khorram said. “[The Chinook] is a much nicer place for group-studying.”
