Fall is right around the corner, which means that cooler weather is approaching.  

As the weather gets cooler, school increases in difficulty as assignments and exams begin to pile up. College can be stressful, that is why having a few hours to relax and think about something other than homework can be much needed for some students.

Here are five reasons to leave the dorm this week.
