The beauty that is the Oswego summer is something I wish we all could experience for longer than the first two weeks of the fall semester and the last .8 days of the spring semester. It’s absolutely astounding the extreme difference between the winters and summers here.
As many of us find ourselves doing (at least once) during the long winter months, I often find myself questioning my decision to attend SUNY Oswego (although after 4 years I suppose that question is rather mute). But then I find myself in a beautiful clear day in the middle of July with barely a cloud in the sky, able to sit on the shores of Lake Ontario waching one of the most beautiful sunsets I’ve ever seen while eating an ice cold soft serve ice cream (black raspberry flavored) on a small wafer cone. (From everyone’s favorite ice cream stand of course).
It’s day’s like that that always remind me why I chose to come to Oswego. Of course I wish it was like this year round… but hey the Oswego winters build character! And if nothing else, it gives us excellent stories to share with people who have no idea what this is like 🙂
