Are you an Edmontonian studying for your exam? Writing up that 20-page essay? Or reading another chapter in your textbook? If so, you would know that concentration is key and you don't want to be disturbed. We strongly believe that atmosphere plays a huge role when it comes to our study time. While some of us prefer a table at the Rutherford Library at the U of A, some prefer social settings, with food and lattes at a local cafe.
