I honestly don’t I have a single favorite place on Ohio University’s campus. My favorite places on campus differ through the seasons. Early in fall semester I love being down at the intramural fields playing softball. Softball is one of my favorite hobbies. I play in the summer on a couple of different teams, and by the time it ends and I’m on my way back to school intramural softball begins so I am still 100% devoted. For the past four years I have been on a softball team with my fraternity brothers and each Monday night I can’t wait to get back down there.
Once winter turns the corner, my favorite place turns into wherever I’m living, which is my apartment this year, above Casa Nueva. Winter time means cold weather (well maybe not Ohio) and football. My roommates and I usually invite some friends over to watch some football, play some video games and crack open a few cold ones. In my opinion, that’s the best part about college, cherishing you friendships and being around friends as much as you can. So that’s why my favorite place on campus in the winter time is my apartment, it’s kind of hard not to like it.
Now, it’s time for the flowers to bloom and pools are about to start opening. Spring time rolls around and I have yet a couple more favorite places on campus. The first being 20 S. College St., home of the FIJI fraternity. We have a nice porch where we all sit out there, listening to music and watching people walk passed our house, which is one of my favorite things to do on campus. Honestly, I guarantee if you asked half of the campus what their top five things to do on campus are, one of them would be people watching. My second favorite becomes the River Park apartment complex pool. On really nice days, a bunch of us like to go down there play music, hang around the pool, play games and honestly become true college kids. I think that’s what I like best about it. We don’t have to worry about anything. We just relax and enjoy the day. I think I will especially like it this spring since it will be my last time enjoying the pool and the atmosphere with all of my college friends.
I think I’m a little bit different than most students on campus because most people I know have one, maybe two places that really stand out to them and they love to be there each and every week. That’s not me, I don’t have just one place, but I think that’s what makes me like Athens the most.
