1. Rand bowls
These things are magical. The long rand bowl line proves it. The intensely dedicated rand bowl lady also bolsters the fact. What are rand bowls, you ask? They are the nutritious grain-protein-veggie masterpieces of Rand dining center. You pick between quinoa and freekeh for your grain, chicken, steak, or vegan steak for your protein, and a variety of vegetables not limited to kale, arugula, salsa, and sweet potatoes. Top it off with some sauce and seeds and you are on your way.
2. Clock tower
Chances are, you’ve probably seen a picture of our infamous clock tower online or on some form of social media. I appreciate this tower not only because of the aesthetic it gives to our campus, but also because of its melodious chime signaling the end of class.
3. The onset of fall and spring on campus
Walking across campus kind of feels like hiking through a forest. I realize that many colleges may not have the pleasure of watching the leaves change color in the fall or a variety of flowers blooming in the spring. If we’re lucky, we even see snow –a first for many. Artsy insta pics are a must!
4. Location, location, location
The location of campus makes anything you could possibly need accessible and within walking distance. Not feeling campus food? There are tons of restaurants practically next door to classes. Run out of shampoo? The CVS on 21st Ave S will be your best friend.
You have all heard about our notorious squirrel to student ratio. We even have a video of a squirrel acting as a tour guide (highly advise to watch). What is more significant about this ratio is that squirrels + bustling college campus = squirrels scattering about with arbitrary human foods and occasionally terrifying students. Stumbling upon a squirrel carrying an entire slice of pizza becomes normal. I love all animals, but our squirrels are somethin’ else.
