Favorite Outdoor Spots
Blogger: Claudia Dumpson
Spring has officially sprung at Oxy! As you may know, Oxy’s campus is beautiful, but it’s especially beautiful in the spring. With temperatures in at least the 70s every day, I’ve been trying to spend more time outdoors, which isn’t hard to do when you go to Oxy. In no particular order, here are my three favorite outdoor spots on campus!
Branca Patio is the outside dining area outside of the Marketplace. The weather has been SO nice this semester (which isn’t out of the ordinary) so I’ve been having most of my meals outside. I have a love/hate relationship with the sparrow-type creatures that flutter around and occasionally rest on people’s plates when they go to the bathroom, but I love Branca nonetheless.
The academic quad, or more colloquially “the quad”, is the center of campus. Students can be found studying, talking, basking in the sun, and admiring the many squirrels of the quad. Clubs and organizations also often hold fundraisers on the quad.
Here’s me and my friend Devin hanging out in the Academic Quad.
The library is great and all but outside the library is even better! If you’re looking to escape the air conditioning and study in the sun, the patio outside the library is perfect. Plus, you’re closer to the vending machines!
Here's my best friends Sianni and Margot doing some reading outside of the library.
