The Place to Be
Posted on Thursday, September 10th, 2015 by Kelsey Rausch
Unlike high school, more often than not, you will have lots of breaks in between your classes. Some people choose to spend it grabbing food in DS (which is definitely advised because, like, nourishment and stuff), some people decide to go take a quick nap in their dorm, but some people, social butterflies and people-watchers alike, spend their time in the atrium. Technically, an atrium is just a large open space in a building and, going off of that definition, there are dozens of “atriums” on campus. However, when you say to someone “Meet me in the atrium for lunch!” they will definitely meet you in the atrium located in the Knutson Campus Center. In my opinion, the atrium is always the “place to be.” People are always walking through, clubs and student orgs always have tables set up, music is always playing, and let’s be honest, the chairs in the atrium can’t be beat by any other chairs on campus. You can do homework…or not do homework. You can socialize with everyone as they walk by…or jam out to music with your headphones on, shutting out the world around you. Also, one of the biggest benefits of the atrium is the fact that it is right by DS, the Maize, the Korn Krib, AND the Coffee Stop! Whatever you are craving, there are plenty of places to fill up on delicious meals or quick snacks! Basically, the atrium is the place to be and I can guarantee, more often than not, that is where you will find me!!
