The weather is finally getting warmer which means students are getting tired of doing the same thing they did all winter. When the weather is nice and the semester is coming to an end, you need to explore and find new ways to have fun. Here are some activities that I always enjoy when the weather is nice.
- Take your work outside
Instead of being cooped up in the library or your room, take your work to one of the greens and be productive there. I don’t know if it’s just me, but some of my most creative ideas come to me when I’m sitting in the grass with the sun shining down on me. It’s relaxing and productive!
- Take advantage of the nature scene
Whether you choose to spend the day at Strouds, Old Mans Cave, Bong Hill or any of the other majestic sites Athens has to offer, definitely take advantage of the options. Athens has so many beautiful places to visit, and I suggest that everyone take advantage of them while they can. I can’t tell you how many times seniors have told me they wish they visited these places more often.
It’s been all the buzz for the past week – Aaron Carter’s coming to OHIO!! “Aaron C’s in the house, here we go!” Mark your calendars, because your favorite childhood star will be on South Beach on April 24.
- Have a picnic
Nothing beats eating outside in the warm weather. You can either pack your own meal or get Grab ‘n Go and eat on one of the greens. I’ve had SO much fun doing this! Some of my best meals have been Boyd Grab ‘n Go on West Green. The picnic feeling makes everything better.
One of the best things about OHIO is that there is plenty to do when the weather is warm. Athens is a unique town with so many opportunities. We’re lucky to be attending a college in such a beautiful area and there is no better time to appreciate that than in the spring. No matter what your interest is, there’s something fun for you, so get outside and enjoy the warm weather!
