Songs for Study Days (playlist)

As midterm exams arrive, students gather in the library. (Coco McKown '04, '10)

As the middle of the semester arrives, University of Redlands students head to the library with computers and books in tow. Students are given two days off in October—“Study Days”—to prepare for midterms and other projects.

Last month, we asked students what they like to listen to when they study and received a variety of answers. From 1980s rock to piano ballads, here are their answers compiled into a playlist.

If you are a Spotify user, here is an embedded playlist, ready to go.
