    Death to the Beach

    By Andrew N. | May 1, 2013

    I think this may be the longest the blog has gone without an update in quite some time. That is really more a testament to how awesome most of our writers are, myself excluded since it has been a whole month in my case.

    This one part of semesters has been bothering me for quite some time, and I don’t believe it gets enough recognition. Yes, people mention that classes are longer and harder, midterms last forever, and overall people just enjoy complaining about change, but everyone is missing the big picture. A long standing tradition has disappeared with the transition…

    Yes, script Ohio can no longer exist due to 15 week terms

    Ok ok, not that kind of tradition; there might be riots in the street if that were to happen. I’m speaking of Oval Beach, which many days of the now defunct spring quarter would resemble a typical beach (minus the sand, water, aquatic life, cheesy tourist shops…All right, I get it there were a lot of things missing). On the beautiful days such as today in years past, hundreds of students would gather to partake in the joys of tanning, tossing a football, or showing off how cute their puppies are.

    Here it is on a not crowded day

    Spring quarter was made bearable by this daytime activity, and missing a class once in awhile to chillax with your friends was almost expected. Now, chances are the last few weeks of school are filled with rain, wind, clouds, or cold. I simply feel bad for the thousands of new students who will only get to enjoy a precious few days on skin row. Actually, I’m not sure why it matters to me so much, I was never able to enjoy it anyway. I mean, I’m an engineer:
