How do you feel about online classes?
While it’s a great alternative to cancelling the semester all together and setting you back a year, it’s not for everyone. Reasons vary but one of the main problems with online classes is that not everyone has reliable wifi.
So here are 7 spots with fast internet connection that’s perfect for your study needs.
