9. A Secret Hideaway at Queens College

College life tends to be quite stressful and overwhelming, as a result, many schools have relaxed, less busy areas in order to create a balance. Queens College achieves this by utilizing the sprawling hills that it was built on. An area of refuge for many students is the amphitheater, tucked away behind Rathaus and King Halls. The area is essentially benches surrounding a lush, grassy hill that leads to a small stage that is sometimes used by the nearby drama department. During the warmer months, students may be seen enjoying a nice lunch or study session, and some professors teach their classes there, weather permitting. The amphitheater is one of the more hidden gems that add charm to the college.
