Fall is coming…well closer at least. The first day of fall was the other day and although it surprisingly was around 90 degrees outside, the feeling of the season blew into Messiah. The feeling of fall on Messiah’s campus is very strong. People get excited about “sweater” weather…although three months from now they will be longing for shorts and t-shirts:). The jackets come out and sweatshirts become normal attire. However, the best part of Messiah in the fall is the colors. God likes to show off, with his red, yellows, and oranges, here on campus. The numerous different trees display their changes in different ways, each trying to outdo the other. The students at Messiah also know that once they are finished with they brilliant display, the fun will begin. All over campus, piles of leaves can be seen…and you know what that means. Yes, we may be in college but that doesn’t mean that we can’t de-stress by flinging our bodies into mounds of color. The crunch, the laughter, and the piles are all over campus. Fall at Messiah is more than just a season, it is a change, not just of weather and conditions but of the campus as a whole. How exciting!
