    I feel sorry for the students

    This spring was cold and crappy. Right up through finals, there was always that biting wind. VEISHEA was cold and rainy. The only really nice days that I remember this fall on campus were in the few weeks in late March/early April. Well, what happens after finals week? Monday and Tuesday are the two nicest days on campus of the spring. Campus looks as good as it will all year with the trees blooming. Too bad most of the students aren't here to see it after enduring that crappy spring.

    I'd prefer its nice now when I can actually enjoy it as opposed to be stuck doing crap for school.

    I enjoy the "crappy" weather. I can't stand when temps get above 85 and humidity gets above 70%.

    Re: I feel sorry for the students

    I would have enjoyed more sunshine, but the overall temperature was perfect for me the past few weeks (with a few exceptions). If I could have had 60-65 and sunny, that would have been perfect. I just can't stand overcast weather, especially if it doesn't rain. The clouds can either rain or get the f*ck out, as far as I'm concerned.

    The weather is god's way of punishing the students for not coming to more basketball games!

    Re: I feel sorry for the students

    I feel bad for the students who never experience summer in Ames. It was the best.

    Great weather, uncrowded, things to do outside. The people who tend to stay over the summer also seemed like a better crowd than during the school year.

    I'm sure they are probably more glad they can actually enjoy this weather now without classes and studying getting in the way...

    The best thing about having good weather during the school year is when all the ladies start sun bathing out on the grass by their dorm rooms. I always took up running about that time of year.

    Dude. Power walking. You can still sell the exercise angle, and you move slower, thus giving you more time to check out the ladies.

    Re: I feel sorry for the students

    One of the reasons I loved May term or "play" term at Wartburg.
    1 class for 5 weeks. From 9-12 in the morning, and the professors wanted to be out just as bad as students did. Very rarely, if ever, did we go the whole time.
    Basically spent the rest of the day outside.
    I think Simpson has this too.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Yes, Simpson also has a May Term. It's a great time to visit my friends that go there, because they've got plenty of free time on their hands.

    Strangely enough I don't feel sorry for them at all from my office.

    Re: I feel sorry for the students

    In my 5.5 years at ISU, I think there was one nice spring before class got out in May.

    This is the norm and I agree that it sucks.

    Summers in Ames are amazing. Probably my favorite time there.

    Yeah, but if they see you "power walking" past them they're thinking you play for the other team.
