My two current favorite off-campus study spots
Recently, I decided to explore some local coffee shops with a friend, Christina, in the MAcc program as I didn't want to head for Starbucks constantly. Columbus is filled with some phenomenal coffee shops that are excellent study spots for Fisher graduate students. Below are my two of my current favorites near campus.
1. Stauf's Coffee Roaster on Grandview
This location is pretty closed to campus, and it was very packed on the Sunday morning that we went! However, there is plenty of space inside the shop, so finding a table is pretty easy. Parking is spacious as well, and the prices are similar to those at Starbucks. There is a lot of food options too. I like to study with noise in the background, so this is a great option, and the food is there to feed us for however long we want to stay.
2. The Roosevelt Coffeehouse on Long St
I personally prefer this place more as the aesthetic is much nicer!
However, it is a bit farther away from campus as it's in downtown, and parking can be a bit hard during peak hours. They have fewer tables compared to Stauf's, so it may be hard to get one during busy hours. I like to come here when I need to get some serious work done, as it tends to be more quiet and calming inside, compared to the hectic atmosphere at Stauf's.
That is my quick review of the two places. Columbus has a lot to offer Fisher graduate students, including a lot of coffee shops to choose from :) I'm hoping to explore more local establishments during spring semester and to blog more about newly discovered favorites. Stay tuned!
