Inspired by the hoards of people dragging chairs out of Noco, I have one simple request.
Fall has truly fallen upon us. As we at Bwog have expressed earlier, it is COLD. And it is only going to get colder from here. Therefore, we should enjoy this nice-ish weather while we still can by having class outside. The steps in front of the Diana Center, Futter Field, Low Steps, and the various lawns around campus are calling my name.
While I’m always willing to sit outside and have a nice deep think about the universe, a particular event that I witnessed prompted me to write this post. On Thursday morning, I saw about twenty people dragging chairs out of NoCo onto 120th Street towards Riverside (not all participants were captured in the photo). Where else could they be going besides to have a lecture in the great outdoors (if you can count Riverside as being part of that? That literally sounds so nice! Let me learn outside!
Let’s follow the lead of these anonymous chair-hauling people and charge Riverside Park and sit outside while we still can. Don’t let having a giant lecture stop you. I saw twenty people steal chairs from NoCo. I think a four-hundred person lecture sitting on Low Lawn would not only be hilarious but would also kill stress culture.
