Fall is a dynamic season on campus, partly because you’re settling in to your academic routine but also still feeling that pull of the great outdoors. The mornings are cider-crisp, the temperatures a little cooler. Wrapped in fall color, the Adirondack High Peaks beckon, and so do the sunny playing fields as fall athletics get into full roar.
Have a date with those books? How about taking your studies to the grassy campus quad or a room with a view (have you seen the ones from our residence halls?) You can find that balance between academics and recreation. Remember, happy play stimulates the mind, and so does surrounding yourself with beauty!
Ready to snap shut that laptop? The Munter Trail from downtown Potsdam follows the Raquette River, and it’s an easy way to get outside. When those layers of clothing get a little thicker as the temperature drops, step inside to catch one of the many performances at The Crane School of Music and treat yourself to a symphony of sound from some of the most talented music faculty in the country and their celebrated guests. Grab a spiced drink from one of the cafés on campus. (Treat a friend?) Or hit the fitness center at Maxcy Hall and start a conditioning routine for that favorite fall or winter sport.
Fall has so many facets, really, so pick a sparkle. Or two.
You’re here, the time is now, and Potsdam is home.
