Oftentimes, where you choose to study says a lot about your snacking habits. Every place on Grounds has a unique atmosphere, and is therefore likely to influence what you eat at those locations.

Here is what your favorite study spot on grounds says about the foods you choose to snack on:

You head straight to the McGregor room when it comes time to study because you value peace and quiet and are easily distracted.

However, rather than generate unnecessary wrapper and chewing noises that would get you instant stares and glares, you decide to blend your favorite fruits and greens in a healthy smoothie that you can sip on while studying.

Open 24 hours, Clemons is likely your go-to for those late nights that turn into early mornings. You are stressed out and crunched for time, and the last thing that you want to worry about is keeping yourself full.

However, you do need to focus, so you choose to snack on nuts (almonds, walnuts, pistachios), apples, yogurt, granola and oatmeal.

Nevertheless, the Corner is close by and if you are willing to walk, you can always grab an El Jefe from Roots to keep you full for a long time. The avocado is full of healthy, monounsaturated fats, keeping you full and focused on your work.

You are a history nerd and have a passion for the law. Moreover, you know that it took almost four years for Allyn Cox to paint the murals depicting law and order.

Flooded with homework, you decide to head straight to Clark, bringing along Ritz crackers and brie. While studying, you take breaks to spread your delicious brie on your crackers while appreciating the genius behind the murals.

Libraries stress you out, and you don’t want others judging your snack choices. The study rooms give you the freedom to snack how you choose. You choose to snack on animal crackers, as they keep you entertained and no one can judge you for eating them.

You are too classy for libraries. You can’t help but judge others for procrastinating on their homework until the last possible second.

Before heading over, you make yourself a simple yet sophisticated panini with tomato, basil pesto and mozzarella cheese, along with a bag of carrots and hummus. While snacking, you study and take occasional breaks to contemplate the beautiful weather through the many windows.
