There are many beautiful spots on campus here at Saint Rose. I have (with great challenge) narrowed it down to my top three favorites!
Springtime is right around the corner! We all know what that means. Everyone will come out of hibernation in their dorms and start to hang out on the campus quad! That’s when I officially decide that spring has sprung! One of my generic favorite spots on campus is the campus quad! It’s almost like our own little beach! On a hot sunny day, there is nothing better than getting out of class, throwing on a pair of sunglasses, and lying on a blanket on the quad with all of your friends. It’s the hub of socialization during the fall and spring here on campus and also doubles as a frisbee, soccer, and even Kan Jam arena!
Second favorite spot on campus would have to be the Fitness Center. Running on the treadmill in front of the floor-to-ceiling glass windows is so beautiful! I love running outside, but sometimes the weather is just too yucky. It’s fun to look and see your friends passing by below too! However, running during the fall and spring at sunset is a breathtaking experience. The colors of the sky in front of you are simply amazing.
Finally, my third favorite place on campus is in the Neil Hellman Library! Not just anywhere in the library, though. My favorite spot is on the second floor overlooking the first floor and the front windows. There is a row of single seats facing out and although sometimes it can be distracting, it’s nice to have a window to look out of as you’re working. Well, I guess if you’re stuck inside at the library and it’s a nice day, you might not want to look out a window. But I love it regardless!
Saint Rose’s campus offers many beautiful nooks and crannies for students to hang out in. What are/were some of your favorite places on campus?
