We asked BJU students where the best places are to study off campus. Some answers were creative, to say the least. Some of the more imaginative included “Tortuga,” “Whoville,” “Alaska” and “The cemetery across the street. So quiet. …”
While others claimed to be “sworn to secrecy,” most students did give legitimate answers, almost all of which were coffee shops. And why not? A coffee shop is the ideal location: a quiet, relaxing atmosphere paired with delicious beverages and snacks.
Which locales did students favor? A couple of national chains made the list, but most are locally owned companies.
- Barnes & Noble
- Bex Café & Juice Bar
- Bridge City Coffee
- Coffee Underground
- Cohesive Coffee
- Crossroads 4 Coffee and Tea
- Methodical Coffee
- Panera Bread
- Scandi Tiny Coffee
Both Bridge City Coffee and Coffee Underground offer BJU students a discount.
Other suggestions included “parked anywhere in the back of my SUV with the windows down” and heading to a friend’s or family member’s house.
Of course, there are always places to study on campus. Students’ favorites include the residence hall study rooms, the Seminary and the gazebo.
