Your Favorite Places to Study for the ARE

To celebrate the new ARE 4.0 Community, we asked you to share photos of your favorite study spots for a chance to win an exam division. It looks like most of you set up shop surrounded by inspiring architecture, furry friends, and coffee—a lot of coffee. Throughout March, three interns were randomly selected as our winners: Baxter Reecer, Megan Garrett, and Sujeetha Bharath. Here are a few of the snapshots you submitted!

#ARE4Contest as long as I have caffeine, sunshine and my obsessive color coding tools, I can study anywhere!
