Top 5 Things To Do In West Lafayette And Lafayette

When the weather finally settles on being nice, these are the best things to do in the area.


Even though some people hate to admit it, there are plenty of things to do in the area. Well, as soon as the weather stays consistently nice.

Mosey Down Main Street

Every local looks forward to the Mosey Down Main Street. Moseys happen throughout the summer in the downtown area. If you are looking for local art and music then these are for you! They are known for dancing, live music, arts/crafts, street performers, and local foods.

Dancing and Cruising in the Streets

I have personally performed in Dancing in the Streets and it is definitely one of my favorite activities in this town. If you love old fashioned cars and dance performances by local studios then this is the choice for you. Once again, there is always food and live music with fun activities for everyone of all ages.

Colombian Park & Zoo

First of all, the park is perfect for a nice relaxing day and a packed picnic lunch. Second of all, the zoo is not like your normal zoo as seen on TV. This is a zoo done Indiana style with the main attraction being the petting zoo. This petting zoo is full of goats and if you're lucky the babies will be around.

Farmer's Markets

Who doesn't love fresh produce and good people?! The farmer's market is a weekly event that allows people to sell their product whether it be food or a handmade gift, it is definitely worth it.

Walking Downtown in the Evening

Walking with a group of friends or a significant other around downtown is one of my favorite things to do. Maybe plan a dinner and then just walk around to take cute pictures in front of cool murals or statues. Make the most of your night. You can always use more pictures for Instagram.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
