The Campus Ghost Town Guide: Solving The Summer School Blues

For many, the summer calls for a break from the stress of classes, exams and professors that don’t put in their grades until the final week of the semester. For some, it calls for a time to go home for a few months and reminisce on all the good, and the bad, times from the past eight months.

But, for others, summer is the time to get a few more of those credit hours finished up with a significantly lower attendance on campus. So, for those staying over the summer, here are four things that just got much easier for you after the end of spring semester.

Study on the 11th Floor at Thompson

Thompson Library is one of the most heavily-populated buildings on campus at all times, and the top floor is usually a mad house for everyone trying to get that coveted view over the Oval. But now, now is the time to take advantage of the campus’ greatest study spot if those summer classes ever get overwhelming.

Snag an Open Computer at SEL

While not quite the view of the top floor of Thompson, 18th Avenue Library is another major study area, and good luck finding a computer to use during a traditional exam week. Luckily for you, summer doesn’t have the traditional exam week crowd, and SEL is perfect for those late hour crams when needed.

Frisbee on the Oval

Oval beach is a staple of Ohio State, but its mass crowd can get in the way of doing much of anything that isn’t laying out or throwing a football in a 10-foot radius. With the crowds not being a problem, now is the time to truly appreciate the beauty of the Oval while trying to throw a frisbee sidearm because, even though it looks so easy, you can’t quite get it right.

Appreciate K-Comm for Everything it has Done

Kennedy is the only traditions that is open over the summer, so it is finally time for K-Comm to get some damn respect. This establishment is the most consistent of the three, and none of Scott’s flashy architecture and various choices will tell me otherwise. Support your local K-Comm, summer students.
