Having trouble studying in your dorm room or at home? Luckily, there are several areas on campus that are excellent for studying, based on your individual study habits and needs.
TOP 10 PLACES TO STUDY AT DOMINICAN
10. The Old Library
Internet access available. So quiet, it's unsettling. The lighting is pretty dim overall, if you aren't near one of the few lamps. Good for hardcore studying.

8. Secluded areas of the Library
Secluded, quiet. Not much traffic. Lots of natural light during the day. Very private area. There aren't very many of these spots so you might have to fight for it. It's well worth the fight. Internet access is obviously available. Great view...potentially distracting view?
