Though I had to bring out the jacket to walk to Kimball this evening, this past week has been wonderfully sunny. The workload, especially a research paper I had to complete for History last Tuesday, has been difficult to concentrate on because of the beautiful weather. It’s not all such a bad thing, though. Especially with daylight savings, there’s even more chances to appreciate the gorgeous campus I still find it hard to believe that I live on!
Lately, walking on Easy Street [where many of the dorms are] guarantees multiple groups of students in their colorful springtime clothes blasting tunes from their rooms, playing frisbee, catching some rays, or having a game of catch.
Other recent moments of Crusader spirit occurred on St. Patrick’s Day last weekend. With such a passionate group of Irish American students on the hill, it was no surprise how much celebrating happened. Kimball served a special corned beef and cabbage dinner and everywhere you turned, you could see green!
During the day, there was a festival outside of Kimball, complete with free kettle corn, spin art stations, live music, and a photo station! The entire day was a great opportunity to celebrate with friends, Irish or otherwise. The smiles and “Happy St. Patrick’s Day!” wishes said all day really encapsulated the tight knit student community at Holy Cross.
There’s only one more full week until Easter Break rolls around, but there’s still plenty left to do! Good luck to all those receiving letters from admissions sometime this week and thanks for reading!
