Show Us: Where Do You Spend Your Time at School?

Do you have a favorite spot on campus? A place you wish you could escape but just can't get away from (the dreaded library cubicle)? Someplace only you know about?

We want to see it! Send us a picture of the place where you spend the most time. We'll post our favorites next week. Send a photo plus a short description of what it is, where it is and why you picked it, to jstahl@voanews.com.

Here's one of the most unusual we've gotten so far. Any guesses as to what it is or where it was taken? (hint: the school this is at was founded and designed by a U.S. president, and this guy hangs out in one of its departments - as does the student who sent the photo)
