While JMU is beautiful during every season, there’s nothing quite like the start of spring on campus. The breezy weather is just what everyone needs to be in a good mood and get through the rest of the semester. When the sun comes out, so do us Dukes. Here are some common habits of JMU students once the weather gets warm.


1. The Quad looks like a beach


2. Your chances of getting hit in the head with a frisbee (or any other sport-like object) increase exponentially


3. ENO hammocks everywhere


4. You’re more compelled to skip class and take a nap on The Quad


5. Dogs are everywhere, along with their male owners who are looking to pick up girls


6. Campus becomes even more insta-worthy (as if it wasn’t already)

Whether you’re a freshman or about to graduate, be sure to soak up the sun on this beautiful campus as much as you can in the next four weeks!
