Spring Into the End of the Semester

Spring has officially sprung on Millersville’s campus as we enter into, in my opinion, some of the worst weeks of the semester. The countdown is on until graduation and summer break, and it cannot come fast enough. As professors cram the last of assignments and finals creep up on us, it is sometimes hard to really enjoy the beautiful weather. So, let’s discuss what exactly you can do during this time of year on a college campus.

Study outside: Utilize this weather to get the never ending assignments and studying you need to do, done. I get it, just because the weather is warming up, does not mean that your list of to dos is decreasing. Rather than sulking over the fact that there is much to be done, utilize the multiple outdoor locations around campus for studying outside.

Take a walk: Walk around the entirety of campus, even those parts you have yet to explore. Or venture into the neighboring communities near campus. Millersville is luckily equipped with plenty of sidewalks and neighborhoods that are perfect for taking a mid-day walk on a warm day.

Explore local markets: Specifically, explore the Lancaster Central Market or downtown Lancaster in general. On a warm spring day, walking around downtown Lancaster and the market is something out of a Hallmark movie, I promise.

Attend sports events: Whether it is a local game or a Millersville specific team, take a warm day to sit outside and enjoy an outdoor sport, while also supporting your university. This can be a fun way to spend time with friends or also a way to support friends who play a sport. It is never a bad idea to have a little school spirit, too.

Relax and recharge: Warm weather is the perfect excuse to give yourself a break to relax and recharge. As a college student, this time of year is exhausting and extremely hard to push through. Take a nice day as a sign to take a nap in your portable hammock or to not touch your laptop for 24 hours. Sometimes, that is exactly what your brain and body need to get back on track.

Soon you will be able to enjoy the spring weather as a simple task without having to worry about impending due dates. Until then, balance fun and work as best you can, and utilize these tips as much as possible. Happy Spring, Marauders!
