A Spring In My Step!
After a looooong winter away from campus, it's now April and officially spring term!
One of my best friends spent her fall term abroad, and since I was off in the winter, I haven't seen her in almost a year. This spring we were finally reunited over a meal at foco (foco is Dartmouth lingo for "food court," more formally the Class of '53 Commons). Reunions are the real beauty of spring; yes, spring brings sunny weather and stunning florals back to Hanover, but it more importantly brings back your closest friends.
One added personal benefit to spring: my birthday! I love celebrating my birthday on campus because it gives me an extra excuse to occupy all of my friends' schedules. After a winter away, it's only natural all those days of major FOMO (fear of missing out) would materialize in spending as much time as possible with the people I love.
All in all, spring at Dartmouth is like the universe plopped all your closest friends on campus and put a rosy-hued filter over it all. So you could say, I'm walking with a spring in my step!
