As college students who spend most of our days outside, I think it is safe to say that we can truly appreciate the fall weather more than most people. There is so much to love, whether it is the colors, the weather or the pumpkin spice everything.
Because we walk to all of our classes, fall weather seems to be the best. Summer is entirely too hot, and it is never fun to get to class and sit in a puddle of your own sweat.
On the other extreme, trudging through a foot of snow or trying to keep your balance on a thin layer of ice is awful. During fall, we have the happy medium. It is not too hot, but not freezing cold; it is just right.
If you ask me, campus has such a calm feel in the fall. Putting aside schoolwork, and the core of the semester creeping up, there is a relaxed feel as you walk from class to class. The leaves are pretty colors of red, brown and yellow and the air is crisp. Now, it is comfortable to be outside and so enjoyable to look at all of the nature around us.
Of course, for most people, pumpkin spice is the highlight of fall. Whether it is the pumpkin spice latte’s from Starbucks, or a delicious pumpkin muffin from Dunkin Donuts, it seems to be the one thing people need when they feel the air getting cooler, and watch as the leaves change colors.
Even if you are not a fan of the taste of pumpkin, chances are, you still enjoy going out with friends and picking pumpkins.
There are definitely people who prefer the summer or winter but I think we can all agree that fall is a beautiful time of year.
So as the cool weather approaches, and the leaves begin to change color, grab yourself a nice pumpkin spice latte and sit outside to enjoy the beauty of the season.
