It’s back to school season and we will be dedicating all our time to studying. Most students that have been here for a year or two are familiar with places that are off campus where they can study. However, for incoming freshman and transfer students finding a place to study, aside from their apartment or dorm, might be hard to find even though it shouldn’t be. For most students attending Texas State they know how busy Alkek Library can be around exam days or just any given day, so I made a list of off campus places where students can get their studying on and that includes wifi (a major essential for college students).

Most places in San Marcos, Texas that allow students to study are coffee shops. Some of the most popular coffee shops near campus are Tantra, Wake the Dead, Mochas and Javas and Stellar Coffee. Although, those places are really good spots to study since they include free wifi and enough space for people to sit, they do fill up fast since they are popular attractions in this city. So, a couple of alternative coffee spots in the city that you can go to are Buzz Mill (located downtown), Perk Up (off of Wonderworld), Summer Moon Coffee (on LBJ or Thorpe), Cafe on the Square, Starbucks and Teapioca Lounge (on Aquarena). There are other places to study that don’t include coffee such as San Marcos Public Library, and it does include wifi and a printer if you’re ever in need to print out study guides or notes for only .10 cents per page.

There is always the option of doing your school work at your apartment or dorm, however sometimes things can go wrong like having tech problems with your wifi or having your roommates distract you. So, having a variety of options of places to study is always good as a backup plan. I tend to get bored of doing school work on campus or at my apartment, so it’s nice to get out and have a change of scenery during those busy times. It’s sort of like a brain refresher when you go to a new place, especially if the smell of coffee lingers in the air.

In their bright golden jerseys, the Texas State Bobcat Football team prepares to rush out of a smoke-filled tunnel to an enthusiastic home crowd. Some players look at each other, others look down, but all have rigid bodies from the tense of the situation, waiting to pour their exuberance onto the field of play.

Home Opener for Bobcat Football Opens Opportunity to Start Fresh

By Alexander Haynes Sports Reporter Opening the season in Piscataway, New Jersey was a layered challenge of facing a Big Five Football crowd, welcoming Willie Jones III to the helm at quarterback, overcoming early penalties, and trying to usurp a Rutgers Scarlet Knights program seeking their own surge of urgency into a new era. The 35-7 loss was anything but a fresh take on a season brimming in otherwise optimistic […]
