A tour of UVM after dark

March 17, 2021

TTo me, there are two different types of nights on campus at UVM. There are the midweek nights when you rarely run into a stranger and you both, especially since COVID, try to keep your distance. Then there are the weekend nights where the noise rarely stops and students are active even when temperatures are in the single digits. Either way, a nighttime stroll through campus can offer a quick way to clear my head. The midweek nights allow for a quiet atmosphere for “daydreaming” and admiring the architectural design of the campus buildings. On busy nights the students offer background noise similar to a coffee shop, just drunker.
