6 Reasons Spring Quarter Will Be The Best Quarter Yet (I'm Serious!)

It's finally that time of the year, the time of year when the sun is out earlier than 9 in the morning, people start wearing fewer layers to stay warm, flowers are in bloom, and the world gets some color back-it's spring time! There are so many reasons to love this time of year, and these are just a few reasons to have in your head to stay positive while also needing to be in school during it.

1. English 101

If you go to Western, then you know how hard and frustrating it is trying to get into English 101 as a freshman for the fall and winter quarter. But, when spring quarter comes around, all that stress goes out the window when the elusive class finally opens up for us. Honestly, for me, that has been one of the best feelings I have ever had in my entire life, and it couldn't have happened without spring quarter, so that is one of the biggest reasons in my book for why spring quarter is the best.

2. Studying Outside

When I think of college, one of the first things I think of is students outside studying on the grass with their friends. This image becomes a reality for all of us during the spring quarter. Yes, you can do this during fall quarter as well, but the fact that spring is after winter (the worst season) makes it so much nicer because you have not been able to do it for months. Being able to study on the comm. lawn or the old main lawn while also getting a tan and enjoying the sun rays is really all that a Western student could ask for, right?

3. The Rose Garden is in Bloom

My favorite part of the WWU campus is the rose garden by old main. It is so so beautiful and seeing it become beautiful again after winter quarter is just such a nice and uplifting sight for me and probably (hopefully) a lot of other students. If passing a pretty rose garden on your way to class doesn't put you in a better mood, I don't know what does.

4. The Sun is Out

Everyone is noticeably nicer and happier when the sun is out. You can just feel the positivity everywhere on campus coming from everyone and it is such a great feeling. Even if classes are stressful, students still seem not to have a care in the world and it's fantastic to be around that energy. Good weather puts people in a good mood, and after winter quarter, it's very refreshing and so nice to see that change.

5. You Can Wear Cute Clothes

For me, I never know how to dress cute during winter quarter. Especially in Bellingham, you're almost always just going to end up wearing jeans and a raincoat. But that changes with the spring quarter. You can wear skirts, shorts, tank tops, t-shirts, dresses, sandals, anything you want.

6. One step closer to summer

Quarters fly by so fast, and once this one is over it's finally summer time! The best season without a doubt. You can go swimming and tanning and hiking and bike riding and basically do anything you want. There is nothing to worry about and it's just the best. Spring quarter is the gateway to that and it makes it that much better.

So, there you have it, spring quarter is really the best. Obviously, it doesn't beat summer, but while dealing with classes, this is as good as it gets. I hope you all enjoy your spring quarter and be as positive as you can because that will make it so much more of an enjoyable and happy time.
