Well, it’s official: today is the first day of autumn. So even though the weather has been amazingly warm the past couple of days (and will be 80 on Saturday–perfect for the Brown vs. Harvard night football game) you may want to rethink wearing those bright pink shorts and flip flops to class. Okay, maybe you can wear them for a couple more days, at least until the weather really turns, but still. The time for soft scarves, comfy sweaters, and hot apple cider is approaching. And freshmen, you’re in for a serious visual treat, especially if you’re not form the area: the trees in Providence turn into the most perfect and splendid autumn colors there are. And as sad as it is to see the summer go, there’s something about the fall that’s completely lovable.
