    It’s that time of year again. Birds are chirping, libraries emptying, social schedules filling to the brim.

Magical non-rainy weather, random lectures happening at 8 AM, parents milling around insisting that you take a picture in front of every bear statue on campus, and the arrival of your friends’ hot younger siblings (who are hopefully seniors in high school, at least). Family weekend. Hooking up with […]
