The things they don’t tell you: where to study
While many people enjoy the library on campus, sometimes a change in scenery helps to get the productive juices flowing. As I’m sitting in one of my favorite Melbourne study locations, here is a list of off-campus study destinations where you can go to get some work done.
Eau Gallie Public Library
I wish I had known about this place sooner. The library is right on
the IRL and has gorgeous views throughout. Located next to the Foosner Art Museum and the Eau Gallie causeway, this is a great place if you’re like me and feel guilty about being stuck inside on a beautiful day.
Einstein Bros. Bagels
Einstein’s is located on the corner of the Palm Bay Rd. and Babcock Rd. intersection. I like to come here in the morning on weekends. The best part is I can buy a coffee and refill it for free until I’ve satisfied my caffeine cravings! They also have a nice large table in the center with plugs built in – perfect for computers. The only downside is they’re only open until 3 p.m.
This one is obviously good for the food. I don’t like the atmosphere quite as much as the previous two locations, but Panera is open until 9:30 p.m. everyday. And, if you sign up for their rewards system, a lot of times you get free food.
I personally like the Starbucks directly over the causeway in Indialantic. There is a nice outdoor patio where the wi-fi reaches which allows you to sit outside while you work. And, it is directly across from the beach so if you need a little study break, you can just walk across the street.
Sometimes switching up routine is important. Try checking out some of these spots next time you need a break from campus.
