The Best Off-Campus Coffee Shops For Studying

Before accepting your finals week fate of being in the library for countless hours, take a raincheck on that date with Howie T. I’ve found some places you can go to switch up the study scene. While off-campus is exciting to explore, it can sometimes be limiting without a car. Here are 3 coffee shops walking distance or street car accessible!

1. Cafe Luna

Magazine St.
