After all the hustle and bustle of Alumni Weekend and Commencement, there is now an awkward silence amidst the campus. The first few weeks of May consisted of constant noise and excitement. There were massive tents and stages all over campus that took weeks to construct. Students were scurrying around campus like mice with the move out carts. (You only have an hour with the cart, so students were packing their entire dorm room into one trip!) Then of course the endless number of grads getting their photo taken along Locust walk. Campus was packed and amped with energy.
Just picture – a few weekends ago, there were over 4,000 students, alumni and families on campus enjoying the beautiful scenery. Everyone was enjoying each others company, and reminiscing about how things used to be, and what campus used to look like. Needless to say, the campus was flooded with red and blue.
Now, not a single flyer on the message board – just some rusty staples and paper scraps. Until September!
Though there is a plus – much shorter lines at your favorite food trucks and lunch spots!
