Just because school has officially started it does not mean summer has entirely ended. While the onset of classes has indeed begun filling schedules with reading assignments and responsibilities, the beautiful, cloudless weather of summer still remains.
Despite the chaos of a new school year, it is important to keep the feeling of summer alive and cherish the weather while we have it.
Here are a couple of ways to keep summer alive for as long as possible.
1. Play some Frisbee.
Frisbee is a great game. Frisbee only requires a large field, a couple of friends and a plastic disc. Oh and maybe a little of the fabulous Colorado weather.
“Nothing makes me think of summer like taking a Frisbee out to the park and throwing it as far as I can, until it is too dark to see,” said Stanford Alum and Boulder native, Nicolai Schlag.
2. Bask in the rays
Although it is beginning to feel a bit like fall, it certainly does not look like it. As long as the sun is still shining and it is hot as heck, it is completely reasonable to be caught getting a tan.
Nothing feels more like summer than lying out and bathing in the sun.
“I love to lay outside, catch some rays and forget all about school,” said CU mechanical engineer major Alex Chu.
3. Throw a BBQ
After all that Frisbee and laying out, it is time for a good old-fashioned BBQ. The key to basking in the summer season is to be outside, enjoying the last of the warm weather every second- and that include dinnertime.
“I just love BBQs. Good food, good people and good music,” said Marisa Dabice, a junior CU international studies major. “Whoever has the first BBQ starts the summer, whoever has the last BBQ ends the summer, so the BBQ better keep coming!”
