8 Amazing Things About Villanova In Springtime
Sydney Benevento

I love Villanova at all times of the year, but there's something special about springtime. Everyone is happy and full of energy again, and the campus just seems more alive. Here are 8 of my favorite things about being a college student at Villanova after spring break.

Daylight and golden hour have returned.

It's no longer dark at 5:30 pm, so halfway through that 4 pm class, you don't want to fall asleep.

Frisbees and volleyballs have come out of hibernation

Walking through campus, there are kids playing sports on any patch of grass available. The Ellipse, Sheehan beach, South Campus volleyball courts, the grassy knoll, you name it.

Lunchtime is like happy hour.

Sitting outside at Cova or Conn is the best if you can find an open table or bench. There are always people walking around, and there's always a table or two around the Oreo fundraising for something. Everyone says hi to everyone, and you are guaranteed to see half the people you know.

Candidate's Day

I dare to say that Candidate's Day is one of the best days at Villanova. Every on-campus club and organization has a table around the Ellipse for an activities fair, music is playing, and everyone is outside having fun. It's like a giant Nova-themed party. No school has more school spirit than we do.

Music. Everywhere.

On a nice spring day, you are guaranteed to hear music coming from every direction outside. Everyone has a speaker blaring upbeat songs, and campus feels like something out of a movie.

Warm weather season = gelato season

Cova serves the best gelato, and the sunshine and high temps make it that much better. Plus, you don't feel like you're going to freeze to your chair after you eat it.

Hammocking

It seems like every person on campus owns a hammock once those 60-70 degree weather days hit. They pop up on campus and it seems like any trees next to each other have at least one hammock hanging from them.

Just the greenery.

Everything finally comes back to life! Springtime really is when I appreciate how much work the landscaping team puts into campus. From the flowers outside the Spit to the plants on either side of the walkway to the church from the bridge, there's suddenly so many colors.

As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?

There's a reason why the Addams Family have become icons of the American cartoon pantheon (although having one of the catchiest theme songs in television history doesn't hinder them).
