I always love campus in the summer. Especially now, during intersession, when the place is empty. On a campus of 50,000 people, it really makes a difference. This morning I went to the gym - it was nearly deserted. There was a hush as I rode up and parked my bike outside. I went in and only a saw a couple of other diehards. It was very soothing and meditative as I did my reps in near silence.
I get pretty possessive of the space through the summer, then am always a little taken aback by the return of the hordes of scantily-clad students in August. Not saying I don't enjoy the vitality of the crowded campus - but there's just something about being able to go to the student union and not wait in line.
