Spring really is the best season for college.

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.

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into.

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.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
