The University of Connecticut is looking for a graduate student to join the Board of Trustees for the Fall 2019 and Spring 2020 semesters. Intent to run and petition of nomination applications for the graduate student representative can be found online at the UConn Voting site, and are due by noon on Sept. 13.
The mention of fall conjures up charming thoughts of pumpkin spice, the changing color of the leaves, the upcoming holidays and, most importantly, the fashion trends that go hand in hand with the beloved season. Despite the drastic weather changes throughout the day, from the mornings fraught with chill to afternoons reminiscent of summer, you can’t help but have fun with the wardrobe that accompanies this season of change.

Fall is by far my favorite season. I’m a little biased because my birthday is in October, but fall really is the best time of year. The leaves are beautiful, the weather is not too hot or too cold, the food is delicious, the holidays are great and fall clothes are the best clothes. Just picture yourself wrapped in a fuzzy blanket next to a lit fireplace with a warm cup of apple cider in hand. That’s fall. What’s not to love? As far as fall activities go, pumpkin picking and apple picking are great, but what sticks out most to me is hiking.
At last, the chilly weather has begun to show its face here in Storrs, accompanied by the sweet aroma of apple cider donuts freshly made outside the Student Union. Now that campus has begun to change into its fall wardrobe, it’s time to slowly make our own transition from Birkenstocks to wool socks and embrace the coming of a new season. With that, however, don’t pack away your shorts too quickly; there are still some mild days in the upcoming forecast.
