Finding the Perfect Study Spot

David W. Mullins Library

Mullins Library (or as some students commonly refer to it as: Club Mullins) is the main library facility on campus, where the majority of the University Libraries’ central offices, collections and study spaces are available. Find a spot between the bookshelves at a table or a more relaxing option…a bean bag chair. If you want more natural light, find a bench outside or enjoy the large tables and open space in the Helen Robson Walton Reading Room. If your work needs a computer, the General Access Computing Lab offers 130 computing stations, including 6 27″ iMacs and 8 scanning stations. Additional printing stations save long walks from workstations. A quiet lab in the Periodicals Room offers space for individual work, while new, larger collaborative stations in the main area can accommodate study groups and research teams. Comfy chairs offer power and wired campus connections. Interested in finding out more about Mullins Library? Visit their homepage here.

Chi Omega Greek Theatre

The Greek Theatre is a popular place for students to gather. Some opt for shady spots on hammocks under the trees or soak up the sun on the theatre’s steps.

G. David Gearhart Hall

Gearhart Hall, named after the university’s former Chancellor, is home to the Graduate & International Admissions and Sponsored Student Programs, Honors College, and a variety of other departments. Students can find study spots in both the Graduate and International Student lounge and Honors College lounge.

Fay Jones School of Architecture and Design

Atop the Fay Jones School of Architecture and Design is a study spot with a view. Although there is limited seating, all students should visit this terrace at least once to view campus from a new perspective.


The nickname for Arkansas is The Natural State. Arkansas is famous for its natural scenic beauty, clear lakes and streams, and abundant wildlife. Arkansas has 52 state parks, 3 national forests, 5 national parks, and the nation’s first National River (the Buffalo National River, which meanders through the heart of the Ozarks, is America’s first federally protected stream). So it is no surprise that on a nice day you will often find students studying outdoors. Find two trees and try hammocking!
