Chill when it’s chilly

In Arts & Life /

By Susana Gómez Báez

Your program’s lounge is much too crowded and it’s way too cold to be sitting outside in the quad. Great, now you’re stuck with a four-hour break between classes and can’t think of anywhere to go.

Here are some good places around campus to chill when it’s chilly:

AMC Food Court

Where: 2nd floor of the AMC

Best time to chill: 2 p.m. – 5 p.m.

Atmosphere: Buzzing with noise.

Constant traffic.

Perks: Nearby food

The Hub

Where: 1st floor of Podium Building

Best time to chill: 1 p.m. – 6 p.m.

Avoid lunch time, it’s crowded.

Atmosphere: Buzzing with noise and people.

Perks: Nearby food. Plenty of sitting space.

Tim Hortons Express Area

Where: Hallway between Library Building and Kerr Hall

Best time to chill: Anytime.

Atmosphere: Quiet, but not too quiet. Lots of traffic.

Perks: Nearby coffee. Great for people-watching.

Lounge by the Hub

Where: 1st floor of Podium Building

Best time to chill: 4 p.m. – 10 p.m.

Atmosphere: Quiet enough for studying but you won’t get kicked out for talking.
