Jonah's Jabs: Great places to study, chill

When it comes to aesthetic views, LCC has a lot to offer. It is a good-looking campus with more than a few good study spots, as well as places to go when you just want to listen to music with your air pods on max. 

Here are my top three study spots at LCC’s downtown campus, going in order from third to first.

No. 3: The food court, located in room 1127 on the first floor of the Gannon Building.

This is a go-to spot for many LCC students. There are many outlets for charging a laptop computer. There are even charging stations that have chargers for almost any phone someone might have. 

The food court is also home to the Grand Avenue Market, in case anyone needs something to drink or a snack on while working. 

The large windows in the food court add good lighting, giving the area a positive vibe. It’s not a coincidence students use that area on a day-to-day basis. 

No. 2: The Shigematsu Memorial Garden. This is located on LCC’s downtown campus, between the Health and Human Services building and Dart Auditorium. 

Not only is the garden aesthetically pleasing to look at, there is also history attached to it. The garden is a memorial to the late Mr. Megumi Shigematsu, a sponsor of LCC programs in Japan and former president of the Biwako Kisen Company. 

This beautiful garden has many things to offer, including Koi fish and a small dock where students can sit.

This garden is bound to draw inspiration from anyone who chooses to embrace its beauty. The only thing keeping it from being number one, is the fact that it is season sensitive. 

No. 1: The fifth floor of the Gannon Ramp. I must start off by saying this is not somewhere to goof around, but instead to get a really nice view of the city. 

Although nobody can drive their car up there yet, the elevator goes up to the top of the ramp.

There is a beautiful view up there, and is a great place for anyone needing to listen to music and zone out for a moment. It can be a silent breath of fresh air when needed most. 

Those are my picks for the top three study spots at LCC’s downtown campus. What are yours? Let me know with an email to
