Here are five reasons to leave your dorm this week.

Lynsey Aldam, Reporter

Happy Friday, Lions! I hope you’ve all had a great week and are ready for spring break! It’s hard to believe that the semester is already almost halfway over. Time flies when you’re having fun! With that being said, make sure you’re communicating with your advisor and planning out your schedule for the fall.

Speaking of fun, I’ve curated five more reasons for you to leave your dorm and enjoy our beautiful community! This week, you have the opportunity to decorate lanterns on campus or jam out with Lindenwood’s Music Program. If that’s not your cup of tea, challenge your Friends trivia or even stretch out to STL for some yoga under the stars. Have a great week!

Holy cow, it’s a great week to be a Lion! Campus will be booming with sports games, from softball to lacrosse to rugby. There’s practically a game every hour, so there’s no excuse to not leave your dorm. Enjoy the spring weather and support our teams!
