This was taken March 19! I love doing homework outside when the weather is nice out. :)

The following are two more questions and answers to the freshman survey! Enjoy! :)

8. What is your favorite on-or off-campus place to study?

  • Eckhart lounge, library, my room, Fruit Plain, etc.

  • My dorm or a desk/cubby in the library. I need to be by myself to truly focus and get stuff done!

  • Library

  • My Room!

  • My dorm

  • The library! I am in there quite often. It is a nice place to work in groups, but also the study rooms are nice if you need to get work done.

  • I love to study in my dorm room and the Eckhardt lounge. My room because I am hardly interrupted, Eckhardt because it is a peaceful place to go without having to walk all the way to covenant, and the grille because of the comfortable couches and easily accessible food.

  • My bedroom or the prayer room in west where no one is. I can't do homework with others.

  • I like to study in the basement of my hall or in my room.

  • My house.. lol or the Fruited Plain or Butlers.

  • Eckardt Lounge gets lit.

  • On would be the library and off would be the Fruited Plain

  • On campus, I prefer the lounges in the science building. Off campus I like to go home during the day when it is empty and quiet.

  • My room or the Bousma lounge.

  • the library

  • Any cozy place! haha I love eckert because of the big windows and fireplace. I also really enjoy 55th since it has more of a coffee shop feel.

  • The library because it is usually quiet.

  • Library, Fruited Plain, Bosema lounge

  • My house or hammocking somewhere

  • I enjoy going to the Fruited Plain if I can be there for a long amount of time. I was just there last week and wrote a 4-page paper in 3.5 hours. On campus, I spent a lot of time in the library first semester. The library is usually a great place to go unless you are easily distracted by people and find a lot of friends to talk to.

  • I love to study at Butlers, The Fruited Plain, and The Old Factory in the winter. In the fall and spring, a hammock is the best place to hit the books and take nap!

  • In my room or sitting outside

  • The fruited plain

  • My favorite place off campus to study is the Fruited Plain. I wish it was open on Sundays although I understand why they're not.

  • library

  • I have found my favorite place to study is in my room when no one else is in the dorms. Otherwise a back room in the library is always good, too.

  • The Fruited Plain or the Public Library

  • The library. My friends and I are always in there doing homework.

  • Fruited Plain... definitely the place to go. I also like to study in the classroom building or science building in some random corner where nobody else goes... I'd tell you my favorite spot, but then it might be your favorite spot and then I might not be able to study there anymore! Haha!

  • The fruited plain is a must! It is so close and a nice environment. Habitue in Le Mars is not as close or well know but it is the bomb.com. The library is a fun place to chill and do homework, and the large science building steps are a nice place to do homework in-between classes, especially when you live in covenant. The place I do focus best is sitting up in bed. It's comfy and the distractions are few, just don't be tempted to take a nap.

  • My room

  • In my room

  • My favorite place to study is outside when the weather is nice :). The library is also great for studying when you need to focus and get something done. Otherwise, I usually do the majority of studying in my dorm room.

  • I prefer to study in my room. Has a good sense of privacy and quiet.

  • On campus-I can't tell or it wouldn't be my favorite anymore! I like to study where it is quiet and without a lot of people so I can focus! Off-campus-the library in town is GORGEOUS and a great place to study if you don't mind some noise.

  • Library

  • I like to study in my room because my roomate is not in the room much

  • The library!

  • In Dordt's library in a cubbie that can see everyone who enters the library. No better way to study and see who there is to socialize with in the library :-)

  • I like the library because I can get free coffee and a mix of studying with socializing at times.

  • I like the library, I can get work done while also being able to see people and socialize.

  • i like to study in the eckardt lounge on campus or out by a tree if it's nice

  • I love studying in my room or in a study room in the library. I also love the fruited plain cafe.

  • Fruited plain or butlers

  • Fruited plane

  • I really really like chapels every wednesday.

  • I enjoy Monday Night Worship, Chapel, and Church on Sunday.

  • I love Wednesday chapel. Aaron Bart is my man! Also there are so many wonderful churches near by, I can't decide which ones I like most.

  • Monday night worship because it is informal and non-judgmental.

  • I love going to Chapel and Praise and Worship. Both of these times of worship are so good as we get to not only worship honestly and openly, but as a whole body of believers. I feel I have grown so much in my faith through P&W and Chapel.

  • During chapel.

  • Monday night worship

  • My favorite way would have to be Monday night worship or GIFT. Monday night worship is very authentic and raw which is so good to be a part of. It's different than anything I've been a part of before, but I'm glad I get to participate in it. It has taught me about the importance and power of prayer. I also love GIFT because there is awesome worship songs but then there is also a speaker. It's just a great way to end my weekend and head into Monday morning feeling refreshed.

  • My favorite communal worship time is Monday night student led worship.

  • Monday night praise and worship

  • Monday night worships

  • My favorite way to worship is through the student led Monday night worship.

  • monday night worship

  • Monday Night Worship duh ;)

  • I love love love Monday night worship. It's my favorite part of the whole week because it's a place where I can be vulnerable. I grew up in Sioux Center, and for my whole life I've felt like I've needed to hid my failures and the things that I struggle with. No one here has problems, but at Monday night worship, everyone's got something going on. The Church is supposed to have that type of community.

  • Monday Night Worship is stellar. The HOME building is also a fantastic place... The prayer room is awesome too if you need a place to just pray or be still.

  • Gift is underrated, praise and worship is appreciated, chapel is necessary, and Monday night worship is awesome. There are also so many churches to experience, although most are Bible centered churches, there is tons of variety. It's great to go visit different churches and have fellowship with different Dordt students. Every church around Sioux center is bound to have a few Dordt students.

  • Church

  • I go to church on sundays

  • My favorite way to worship communally is actually Wednesday Chapel :).

  • I enjoy chapels for the most part. We get to praise God as well as listen to Aaron Baart talk about faith, love, and the Bible.

  • I love Monday night worship. It is so freeing and a great way to relax into Jesus before the week starts.

  • I really like Monday night worship and chapel on Wednesdays.

  • I like Monday night worship because it provides an opportunity to sing and pray and it just seems like a real place, where everyone is equal

  • Thursday Night Worship.

  • Monday Night Praise and Worship or Sunday Mornings at First Reformed Church. Both are an awesome opportunity to meet new people, praise the Lord, and deepen one's relationship with Jesus.

  • Monday night worship! This has impacted me sooo much. I love the smaller group, but also the flexibility of how we can worship and have fellowship. We can sing, pray for each other, read scripture, or even just reflect.

  • I like Monday night worship because it's student lead and you're surronded by people who want to be there.
