Warming temperatures last week brought campus to its full spring glory, as flowers bloomed and the lawns and docks filled with students talking and playing games. Since then, a cool and rainy spell has sent more people indoors, but the promise of warmer days lies ahead.
The warming temperatures brought plenty of people out onto Goodspeed Family Pier to soak in the spring sunshine.
