Top 5 places to nap at UIC’s East Campus


Some people see a couch, I see a mid-day respite. (which is the same thing)


Everyone has a busy schedule. It seems like there’s not enough time in the day to get all of your classes, studying, workouts, work shifts, extracurriculars, and social life commitments done in 24 hours. Usually a single day involves some sleep, right? Sometimes you just need to crash wherever and whenever possible. Here’s my top 5 places to nap at UIC’s East Campus. (You should feel lucky that I’m sharing this information with you)



1. Newman Center

The Newman Center is the youth Catholic center on campus. It hosts mass every day. Catholic or not, the Newman Center is open for use for everyone. It has a multitude of couches and seats that are pretty empty the majority of the day. Being a church, it will most likely be quiet, so your naps will be uninterrupted.

Ok boys, here’s a surefire way to get those girls falling at your feet: take a dance class!

I mean, think of the advantages:

1. You get to tell a girl what to do (she won’t object because it’s hot)

2. You hold her close, (still no objection)

3. And it is a social activity that will completely boost your confidence and popularity.

And don’t even get me started on how actually challenging and fun dancing can be!

Seriously, it’s hot, it’s a sport and it will get you numbers. What more can you ask for?

And don’t give me the lame “two left feet” or “no talent, I’ll look stupid” excuses. Ok, so maybe you’d look kind of silly for a little while, but anyone can dance with a little patience and practice and I promise, you will like the results.

And if you’re lucky, you’ll end up looking like this:
