9 Fun Places To Study In Toronto Because Who Wants To Study At Home

 The environment you study in can reflect you grades, therefore it's important to set yourself up in the right place. Let's be honest, who really looks forward to writing a 5,000 word essay on Shakespeare's Hamlet or preparing for a final Bio exam ? *tears*

In order to help you get motivated during this stressful time of the year, score 100% on your exam and write the greatest thesis ever complete by a human being, perhaps you should consider switching up your study scene. Instead of staying home or going to your school library that you absolutely hate, here's a list of 9 fun places to study in Toronto:

4. Ripley's Aquarium // 288 Bremner Blvd.

After exploring the marine world, get your studying on at the Ripley's Cafe. What a unique experience that would be, don't you think? You'll obviously have to buy a ticket to get into the aquarium, but the end result will be totally worth it! Perhaps Dory and Nemo will give you some study inspo.
