After months of many students being angry at Punxsutawney Phil–the groundhog whose missing shadow tricked us into believing that spring would soon be on its way–the weather has finally heated up in south-central PA. Elizabethtown College students have taken full advantage of the “improved” weather conditions by sitting, studying and socializing outdoors.

Some of the most popular spots seem to be located on the Baugher Student Center’s patio and in the grassy Dell.

However, other students might prefer sitting in the quieter areas of campus, such as sitting on a park bench or the ledge of a stone wall in order to focus on their work.

    I love any free spot where I can read a book on my lunch break! I love to eat with my colleagues, but during this nice weather, sometimes I like to grab a blanket out of my truck and catch up on some pages!
