Winter at Case
The end of winter break has prompted the start of the spring semester. Students have been busy moving back to campus and are getting acquainted with their new class schedules. Everyone is taking advantage of all the snow around campus by building snowmen, starting pick-up football and frisbee games, or just running and rolling around in it. After a pristine snowfall you can be sure to see it ruined by students who have already started playing in it around The Village football field. Plus, campus is beautiful after an overnight snow!
Campus groups are making it easier for everyone to get back into their routine by providing hot cocoa to students on their way to classes. Since everyone usually passes by the Kelvin Smith Library (KSL) on their way to classes each day, there is always a group of students huddling together and yelling, "Free hot chocolate!" One of the biggest things we students missed over winter break (besides Case itself)...the free food! Organizations have already started grilling outside (even if its 15 degrees) and giving out pizza and snacks in Nord.
Nord is one of the most popular places on campus during the day because of its bright atrium, endless supply of comfortable couches and chairs, and its computer labs. Not to mention the Einstein’s Brothers’ Bagels cafe steps away from the couches! Ah, college life, the smell of fresh brewed coffee and baked pastries. Sounds like a corner coffee shop and not an academic building, right? Even though Nord houses the School of Engineering, you definitely do not have to be an engineer to enjoy it. If you are ever bored or cold on a day like today, then head to Nord because you are bound to see a friend, pick up some food, or take a mid-day snooze on the couches.
