If we had them, students would definitely go!”

It’s 10am on a Saturday and the Farmers’ Market is full of hipsters with burlap bags, loud Italian men, and young energetic families.

A single drop of sweat runs down your forehead but you continue to saw until that tree is yours, patting it gently as it slightly moans at your victory. You drag the tree to a waiting truck and tie it on top, crafting each knot with the utmost delicacy until you are sure it is safe to journey home with you.
Commuters. They’re that group of people you see in the lounge above the main stairs whom you may or may not know. Often loud and frequently playing chess, the lounge has served its purpose by creating an environment where commuters can socialize between classes and relate with tales of off-campus experiences.
