Study spot scoop

Come exam time, the second floor cubbies in Green Library and the booths of Meyer are overflowing, and a bit more creativity than usual is required when choosing a place to hunker down and hammer out looming assignments. Asking a Stanford student about his or her favorite study spot can be like asking a magician to reveal his secrets, but some were willing to divulge their cherished study spaces for the greater good.

Ryan Mayfield ’13 has been featured on Sports Illustrated and ESPN’s websites as the football fan of the week. Every Saturday last quarter, he could be found covered in Cardinal gear at Stanford Stadium, and over winter break, he made his national television debut at the Fiesta Bowl. The Daily’s Kimberly Bacon caught up with Mayfield to talk about his life as Stanford’s “superfan.”
