We students love (and need) our coffee.
Many students are only familiar with the convenience and proximity of our campus coffee choices, but those can fill up quickly.
For times when you need a change of scenery and motivation, here’s a guide to some of the best study spots around (and don’t worry, they all serve coffee).
Many students have said that the south campus Starbucks is the best place to grab a cup of coffee and study. It’s bigger than the one on north campus and offers more space for students to meet with groups for those final projects at a convenient campus location.
Peace and quiet
When you need a place to really focus, senior biomed major Lorin Wright suggests the coffee shop inside of Barnes and Noble.
When asked why she didn’t choose the library, she brought up a good point that during finals, the library almost becomes a social outing and while that’s all fun, it becomes a less productive work space.
If you’re looking for atmosphere and local, many students have suggested Firecreek. Firecreek has late night hours and gourmet coffee.
Junior, Delaney Brown, said she chose Firecreek because of the comfy lounge chairs and the ambiance. “While it is not drop a pin quiet, there is always chill music playing.”
Only in Flagstaff
One of the most famous coffee shops in Flagstaff, didn’t come up as much as I had thought.
It turns out that Macy’s is a perfect place to meet up with friends before studying to get a caffeine fix and a bite to eat.
But when it comes to getting it done, the noise level can be a bit too much. Macy’s is where students go to socialize, not to study.
A local favorite — Late for the Train
Private tables with great WiFi and easily accessible outlets allow for highly productive study-group meetings.
Bonus — during warmer months, take your coffee to go and enjoy it on the lawn of the county courthouse.
Steep — Leaf Lounge
Slow it down, unwind and enjoy a cup of tea at Steep. Did we mention the great window views and macaroons too?
