Everyone knows Hopkins students are stressed. We scream stress from the tips of our bedheads to the soles of our unwashed socks. Everyone needs to get away for a little while, so here are the best places to do it.

Your Room

If you’ve got it, flaunt it, make all the freshmen and sophomore McCoy dwellers jealous. Truly a hiding place classic, there’s nothing better than sitting by yourself and watching TV like you don’t have three midterms next week.


That drawer you can keep perpetually stocked with chocolate and tears.

A Closet

If you don’t know, then I can’t explain it to you.

A Tree

You get stress-killing exercise from the climb and a nice perspective-inducing vantage point from the top. If you’ve ever played hide and seek as a child then you know that there is no hiding place quite as impressive as a tree.


You get to observe weird creatures in their natural habitat.


The inhabitants of Brody truly come from the best of both worlds. There, you can see the last minute paper writers and all night studiers, as well as the people who seem to have their life too together and are up past 3 a.m. in order to get homework done for next week. Only in the BLC can you both feel both bad and good about your situation in life by watching the people around you.
