Warm Weather, Where Art Thou?

If you don’t believe what weather.com will tell you, just step outside your door for two seconds, and you’ll experience the fantastically beautiful weather that is very un-October (which is fine by me, since I still want summer). If you’re on Butler’s campus, there are many options for people looking to relish these final days of warmth.

Benches: where work comes to be distracted.

  • Go on a run! (You’re great HRC, but sometimes outside is just nicer)
  • Throw a disc
  • Do homework outside on a bench
  • Lay outside, work optional
  • Visit Holcomb Gardens (The painful reminders that it’s autumn are there, but that doesn’t mean it’s not beautiful)
  • Keep your window open
  • Wear shorts
  • Wear t-shirts (Both advisable anyways)
  • Sit in class hoping against hope that your teacher will take you outside (which sometimes WILL happen. Thanks Dr. Spyra!)

 

Study Central

For a campus with a relatively small number of students, it can be surprisingly difficult to find a good study space away from one’s room. We can chalk this up to Butler’s studious and dedicated body of burgeoning scholars. For those of you wondering why I needed to study away from my room, it’s because there’s absolutely nothing worse than studying feet away from a bed. I have learned this through many a study-time turned nap-time.

Look! Over yonder! The Butler Observatory.

Over the summer I happened upon a wonderful study room in the recently renovated Pharmacy Building that was both well equipped and had a fantastic view, a prime panorama of the Butler Observatory. Getting here early in the morning was a struggle, but once I was up, this room helped me focus more than any amount of caffeine could.

The comfiest chairs you'll ever sit in. I guarantee it.

 

 

 

The reason I was on campus over the summer was for BSI, or the Butler Summer Institute. This is a chance for the scholarly and self-driven students of Butler’s campus to engage in research over the summer with a professor . Needless to say, I saw more fluorescent rays this summer than I did sun rays.
