5 BEST places to study for finals – Missoula Edition

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it’s here ladies and gentlemen, fall finals 2014. Lucky for you, this list will manage to keep you sane, happy and allow you to figure out where you can best meet your studying needs (whether those needs are wine, mimosas, bloody mary’s, or maybe coffee is more your style…no judgment).

1. Tamarack Bloody Mary Bar

Let me guess, you have approximately 4 group projects due within the next 10 days. If you’re anything like me, you have finished MAYBE one of these completely and aren’t exactly sure how to remain sane throughout the next three. I best find my sanity through bloody mary bar at the Tam, Saturdays & Sundays, 10AM – 4PM, and I’m sure your group won’t mind! Don’t like bloody mary’s? Tamarack’s got you covered with the neighboring mimosa bar!


2. Caffè Dolce

Studying for finals is overrated (but often necessary) so you might as well pretend you’re on a European adventure, drinking an espresso somewhere in Florence, Italy. Wine, chocolate, coffee and gelato may be the key ingredient for getting that A!


3. Break Espresso

We all know and love Break Espresso, located downtown Missoula. With a warm and cozy atmosphere, delicious coffee & snacks, long hours and lots of space, Break Espresso is sure to be the hot spot for students to warm up and study!



4.  Perkins

If you’re a night owl, Perkins may be your new favorite hang out. Perkins is open 24/7, serving all the coffee and food your heart desires!


5.  Mansfield Library

If you’re a little more on the traditional side, the Mansfield Library may be the perfect spot for you! With long hours for finals week, all the silence you can ask for and the slight chance of seeing someone you know, the library may be your best bet! (SPOILER ALERT: the Poetry room on the 5th floor is a hidden GEM!)



Happy studying!
