The view from my window…

Most mornings, the first thing I do is look out the front window of my room to see what the weather looks like.

I today, as every morning, did it instinctively.

I take this view for granted day in and day out, and I’m partial but I think the lakeside house I live in offers some of the greatest views of campus.

When I look out my window I look right over the college lake, where I can see the spoonholder, and during warmer months the fountain. ( I live on the second floor)

But it’s the view that I get every morning as soon as I walk out the door and onto my front porch that amazes me even more.

Look up the large hill on the right and you’re looking at the “women’s dormitory”, which we now affectionately call Patton, which is easiest the most beautiful of all of the resident halls.

You look straight ahead as you walk the hill down to the sidewalk, and now because with few leaves on the tree, you can see all the way down through the football field and across campus.

And finally as you turn left to walk to class, you glance over the lake and directly up to Brown Chapel and our newest building, Walter hall, which is a sight in itself.

These views are something I take for granted, and I would choose to write this on a drab Wednesday, but the beauty here never ceases to amaze me.
I am lucky enough to be reminded every morning and every time I step on the front porch what surrounds me, and that’s everything that makes Muskingum, what it is.

It’s the simple charm and beauty of a college on a hill.

Happy Wednesday,
Katie
