34. Common Grounds
School: University of Kentucky
Address: 343 East High St # 4, Lexington, Ky.
Common Grounds is just like any other coffee shop, but with two differences. With 4 rooms with which to put your stuff, the place is huge. The main room is filled with people playing games, talking loudly, or listening to the occasional live music. But through the other rooms of the building different dynamics grow, alliances are made, boundaries are drawn, petitions are being signed to ban the Decemberists from the playlist, and all of it is fueled by the never ending cup of coffee they offer (you’re reading that right).
