Why OU Rocks During the Fall

Athens, OH 08 October 2013 – I’m currently working through week 7 of my fall semester and it’s been a doozy! This coming week I’ll have several midterms and most people get stress about these things, and I’ll admit I do feel it too, but it’s important from time to time to stop and smell the roses, coffee, or in my case the leaf pile! Athens is absolutely gorgeous during the fall and I love fall because it’s football season and hoodie weather!


Fall


This coming weekend is Homecoming and everyone is getting excited. OUr football team is coming back from a great victory over the University of Akron (43-3 OU-Oh Yeah) and we are looking to come back and dominate Central Michigan. After we defeated Akron, I had to call my brother to taunt him because he is currently a senior there; he didn’t find it as amusing as I did of course.


Marching 110


Alumni from Ohio University will be coming down and it’s cool to see how big OU really is. I love Ohio University because it’s a b-e-a-utiful campus and Athens is the definition of a college town. The Marching 110 (OU’s Marching Band) has an annual tradition with alumni of the band. The day before homecoming is when they’re all invited back and they will rehearse with the current band members. On Saturday, alumni will be able to relive the glory days and march with their instruments again. I remember last year’s show vividly and it was flawless, our band takes pride in perfection and in excitement too! OSU may be the best damn band in the land, but OU is the most exciting band in the land!


So enjoy the fall, because it happens only once a year. And fun facts of the day: 1) you are never too old to play in a leaf pile and 2) leaf piles are more fun when raked by someone else–until they chase you away with the rake!
