Recently, I’ve been really appreciating the little things here at the beautiful Union College. Although I rarely take the time to sit down and make a list of all of the things about Union that brighten up my day – I thought I’d list a few of my favorite little things today.
1. The Perimeter
I absolutely love running around the perimeter of campus! I ran Cross Country in high school, and since then, long distance runs have always been enjoyable and relaxing to me. It’s well-known knowledge that one loop around the perimeter is 1.7 miles, and thus, it’s pretty easy to keep track of how far you’ve run. Plus, it’s kind of interesting to check out the Schenectady scene as you run by. Yesterday I took full advantage of the perimeter and ran 3.4 miles. It felt great.
2. Laundry View
The laundry room in my dorm is all the way downstairs (a whole three flights!) and I usually don’t feel like taking the trip downstairs with all of my laundry just to see if there are washers available. But thankfully, Union College uses Laundry View – A website where you can see what washers & driers are taken before you have to step foot outside of your dorm room. And if you’re usually lazy like me, this is heavenly!
3. Campus Movies
Union provides us with a free movie on campus every weekend. Enough said!
4. Our Class Facebook Group
After you’ve been accepted as a student to Union College, a Facebook group pops up where you can introduce yourself and get to know the members of your class. But what happens to the group when you’ve started school & have been here for awhile? Well, other than random “missing” ads that students post when trying to find a lost book or jacket, the group consists quite a few funny posts. I always find myself laughing while reading some of the random posts or jokes. It’s a simple way to brighten up your day.
Either way, those are a few of the little things that I love about Union (and of course, there are many more, but I don’t even possibly have time to list them all).
Hope you all are having good Tuesdays!
