Enjoy the Weather! by michaelminnock

I’ll be the first person to tell you if you don’t already know Pittsburgh can have some harsh winters. That’s why I’m hoping you are all taking full advantage of the warm weather while you still have the opportunity. Going to class and then going straight back to your dorm room is not very healthy. Take the chance to sit outside, walk around campus, go for a run, or just enjoy the sun. Once November hits you’re really going to miss the sun. I’m not saying it’s horrible when it gets cold, but enjoy each season. That’s another great thing about Pittsburgh that it’s a four season city. Enjoy the little things that make Pittsburgh/Duquesne special, whether it’s the warm air, the first color change on trees, the first snowfall, or the first feeling of a spring breeze. These are all things that take us away from the occasional stress of school. Life is about enjoying the little things. College will keep you busy, so time goes by pretty quick. Make sure you don’t forget the little things that make you happy.


SNOW! by katzb

I have lived in Pittsburgh all my life, and this weekends snowstorm was the most snow I’ve ever seen! It also just happened to be my birthday on Saturday, so I spent my 21st shoveling my way out of my parents driveway, and then into my driveway at home! Needless to say, I am sore today! One thing people seem to like about western PA is that we experience all four seasons to the fullest! This is a perfect example of extreme winter weather, but we also get hot summer days perfect for the pool, and a nice fall and spring as well.

My driveway after being shoveled. The snow was piled up about 4 feet!
