2) Visit Calhoun’s 13th Floor.

Ranked one of the best views on campus, venturing to the 13th floor of Calhoun Residence Hall will be worth the climb up all those flights.

4) Hammock on Sigma Sigma Commons.

Grab your ENO hammocks and find the perfect lounging spot on the trees at the Sigma Sigma Commons Park.

Try not to spend your entire paycheck on room decor and bedding at this new mini-Target with your date as your second opinion.
