As a senior, I have come to take for granted returning back to Bucknell in the Fall. However, as it is my last year here and I have begun to think about all the turns my life will take in the near future, my eyes have taken on some new insight of this place I have grown to know and love.
In my geology lab the other day (sadly trying to acquire my lab science requirement), my lab partner pointed out to me the beautiful combination of shale colors in our rock kit. A switch in my head turned and I couldn't stop looking at these beautiful rocks. And, as I left lab and walked back to my gateway, I noticed how these shale colors mirrored the colors of Fall at Bucknell. These colors, almost more than Blue and Orange, seem to be the true Bucknell colors. The mix of red, yellow, and green leaves, the return of light jackets, and the classic Bucknell brick inspire me. This simple, yet meaningful observation brought me back to why I came here in the first place: to connect the classroom of Bucknell and colors, textures, and patterns of the landscape into my own worldview.
