This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Harvard chapter.

As sunny, happy, and beautiful some of the first weekends of September have been this school year, October started rainy, chilly, and sad. The paths of Harvard Yard filled with puddles this week; the colorful chairs stood abandoned. Tourists began buying Harvard sweatshirts and crimson-colored umbrellas instead of tanks and T-shirts. Students dug out their rainboots from their suitcases. However, as gorgeous as the Yard looks on a warm fall day with hundreds of bright orange, red, and yellow leaves, it still has its charm on these sad October days. Stay warm, invest in a cute raincoat, watch out for enthusiastic tourists poking you with their umbrellas, breath in the fresh air, and enjoy Harvard Yard!
