It happened, here it is! Spring has arrived. After a long stretch of cold days for the winter season, the first beautiful day of spring is a celebrated day on campus. The Great Lawn goes from completely un-walked on to covered with picnics and students playing sports. The campus is filled with a new level of joy when we emerge from our inside quarters to feel the sun on our skin.
Professors take classes outside for the day, homework gets pushed off till the sun goes down and everyone smiles a little bigger. It is a new kind of magic with the sun is shining a little brighter and the grass is a little greener, as if that is possible. It is the perfect day for campus tours, and the perfect day for outside studying.
Sometimes I forget how many students attend this school until spring time comes around, and everyone spends more time outside filling the campus with energy!
