Dads weekend is one of my favorite weekends to spend in Athens. Every year my dad comes to visit, and we have such a good time together. Since the day my sister was born, it is rare that I get to spend time with just my dad so I always look forward to Dads Weekend. We use it as a time to get together and have a good time. Usually we go out to eat, watch some sports, and do something to get outside.

This year for Dads Weekend, my dad came in on Saturday and stayed until Sunday. Luckily for us, it fell on opening weekend for Ohio Basketball. My dad and I love to watch sports, so we went to watch the opening Men’s and Women’s basketball games. Both Ohio teams walked away with a win to start their season!

After the game we went to get dinner and then went back to my apartment. We had some of my friends come over with their dads and we all played cards while watching football. It was fun to introduce my dad to my friends as well as their dads.

On Sunday, we went golfing at the Ohio University Golf Course that is located on campus. It is a beautiful 9-hole courses that is always in great shape. My dad and I enjoy playing golf, and we have been playing together for years.

We made plans with another engineering ambassador and his dad to meet up and play golf on Sunday. He was excited that my friend and his dad got to join us and add in a little more competition. 9-holes later we crowned a winner who was…not me.

The course proved to be challenging because there were lots of leaves covering parts of the course. If the ball landed near the leaves it was impossible to find.

After we all played a round of golf, my dad took me out to dinner and then he went home. It is crazy to think that this was my last undergraduate Dads Weekend, but it was by far my favorite.
