6 Reasons Fall is the Best Season of the Year

1. Sweater weather

There’s no denying that when you roll out of bed, sometimes you just want to dress like a bum. In the summer months, it’s difficult to do this. What’s great about the fall time is you can dress like a bum and still look good. All you need is a big chunky sweater and leggings. And if you want to look even more put together, swap leggings for jeans, and add some heeled booties.

2. Halloween

Halloween on college campuses is often a weekend-long event, making it easily the most fun aspect of fall semester. Also, you can’t forget the classic halloween movies and horror movies on those nights in.Photo courtesy: Pexels

3. Pumpkin spice– everything

You hate to love it, or love to hate it. Either way, it’s a very important part of fall. Pumpkin spice lattes are definitely not overrated, but sometimes people take the universal love for pumpkin spice a little too far.


4. New school year

Sure, summer brings some of the best memories of the year. You can’t beat summer break, and the beautiful weather that comes with it. Unfortunately, summer has to come to an end at some point. With the end of summer, comes the start of a new school year. As August winds down, you become more accustomed to the new school year, and the change is definitely exciting! It’s like starting a new year with the actual new year only a couple months away.

5. Fairs

Summer= Music Festival Season. Fall= Fair Season. Fairs are often not as exciting as music festivals, but they are still a fun way to spend a weekend afternoon. How could anyone not enjoy going on rides and eating fried food?  An added bonus is that even during the day, the weather will be just the right temperature. The most popular fair in North Carolina, the North Carolina State Fair took place Oct. 12-22, in Raleigh, North Carolina. The fair had rides for all ages,  tons of free entertainment, and food vendors.

6. Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving marks the first long break of fall semester, meaning it’s the first time since the summer you’ll be home. Seeing your family that you haven’t seen in a few months, and any pets you have been missing is so great. It’s nice sometimes to take a break from the hectic college life and relax at home with your family.
