The Curious ‘Cat: Almost Perfect Weather vs. Studying

Curious Cat

This week, the Curious ‘Cat asks Villanova students, “When the weather’s this nice, how do you get your studying done?


Mikaela Yatsinko—“I lie outside … and read my work. I study outdoors.”











Paul Pergolizzi—“For me it really doesn’t matter how good the weather is. I usually just come right into the library. At the present time, it’s usually where I end up studying. … Sometimes I’ll eat outside if it’s this nice.”








Marsha Richard—“I definitely have to be organized and set a time aside to study. And when the weather is this nice, I’ll study outside if I need to … to be able to have the best of both worlds.”








Christie Leonard—“I try to study inside. It’s very tempting, going outside. I just try to push everything else out of my mind except for my work. I’ve found that writing a ‘to do’ list with check boxes to check things off really helps me. That way I can see what I’m doing, and it helps me concentrate more. I think focusing is the biggest thing.”





Michael Bigley—“I try to remain inside; it helps to keep me from distractions. But I think it’s important to enjoy the weather, so I also like to study outside.”









Molly McGuinness—“I take a lot of breaks outside. So I’ll study for an hour then I’ll go side outside with friends for fifteen minutes. … It works.”
