Riae Soh Professor Gonzalez COM383 Practicum #2 Fieldnots Observation Date & Time: 4/13/27 2:30pm-4:30pm Observation Site: I chose Starbucks in Magnolia for my site, because a lot of people come in and out since it is the most popular coffee shop in Magnolia. I was observing Starbucks on Thursday 4 th at 2:30 PM to 4:30PM. This place is a great loctation to grab a coffee and chill for people who live in Magnolia because this is the only one Starbucks in Magnolia village. When I walked in there are lots of people studying with laptops and there are some people having a conversation. Workers working hard. The weather is chilly. Baristas yell out customers’ names and drink orders when they are ready to pick up. One woman customer and a barista have artificial conversations about how they are doing each other. I see lots of students sitting at the big table, it seems like they are working on their homework. There are different groups of people/ three girls sitting together, couples, and some adults sitting by themselves, some kids playing with their parents. There is a kid’s playing zone. There are some toys and books they can read. Workers seem friendly to customers, and they chat when there are no customers. Peaceful atmosphere and the background music is really calm and relaxing, people who working on their homework seems like they are fully focusing on their homework, it seems like the music is not distracting them that much.

After 20 minutes, there is a steady stream of people coming in about 7 people ordered hot drinks and 3 ordered cold drinks. The coffee shop is almost full, seems like it is not rotating quickly since lots of people are staying longer. There is wide variety of people of different age groups, and it seems like most of adults (old people) who came by themselves sitting together on the sofa. It seems like they do not know each other but they are sitting together. (Mostly males) There are four sofas, and for man sitting there. Two of them are reading newspapers, one drinking a hot latte and another person is eating a croissant with a hot latte.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
