The temperature is rising. The trees are growing greener. The birds are chirping.
That can only mean one thing — spring is upon us.
In college, I’ve found that spring seems to take on a different air. The campus seems to come alive, and everyone seems to be rushing outside.
In high school, spring had little meaning. My whole day was practically spent inside, so the only change was the scenery I was staring at outside the window. Only the nicest of teachers would hold class outside.
But in college, even a change of classes promises at least 10 minutes of glorious sunshine. There can sometimes be hours of time between classes or activities. It isn’t hard to see why students would take to the outdoors to do even the most ordinary things.
