College students have been back on campus for a few weeks now, and homecoming season is fast approaching. Although my college years are not yet too far behind me, I fondly reminisce about the days spent in those hallowed halls of learning.
These classroom images below remind me of early morning lectures and exploratory laboratory sessions.I recall spending most of my time among the stacks of the campus library. I was not only studying, but also working at my first library job.
Of course, I’m sure we all have just as many vivid memories of friendships, romances, and other adventures that rounded out the college experience. Can you relate to this bashful couple below?
Many hours were spent soaking up the sun between classes, talking with classmates about everything from aspirations to vacations.
And what would the college experience be without the excitement of sporting events and a little friendly competition?
Alas, my college years came to a close with bittersweet graduation. Do our photos trigger happy memories of your own school days?
