Bucket List Item Number 99: Take a walk across campus early in the morning before anyone else is awake
If you’re up early studying for midterms, a walk around campus can be very centering. Arguably, UNC is at its best in springtime, and it’s most peaceful in the morning. I took a walk around campus this morning, and here’s how yours might go:
6:45 AM: Look east to see the sunrise. (If you’re standing on Polk Place, look toward Davis Library.)
7:03 AM: Sit in front of Wilson Library. Though the sunrise isn’t visible from this point, you can enjoy Polk Place when the only sound is that of birds chirping.
