It’s that time of year again where we trade in beach days, sunscreen, and barbecues for pumpkins, hayrides, and apple cider! We’re so excited that fall is finally here, and if you’re wondering why, we listed ten good reasons below!
1. Two words: sweater weather.
While those flip flops and crop tops will be seriously missed, it’s always satisfying cracking out some of your favorite warm sweaters. Maybe you’ll even add some new additions?
2. And boots, too!
Sweater weather also calls for a good pair of boots! Fall look = Complete.
3. It’s PSL season.
If there’s anything that eases the sting of summer ending, it’s pumpkin spice lattes. It’s been a long year of waiting for this festive seasonal beverage, but now we can finally indulge…a lot!
4. Football starts up again.
From college game days to watching the NFL on Sundays, we’ve seriously missed the way this fall sport brings everybody together. Oh, and we’re pretty excited about all the game day snacks, too! Buffalo wings and sliders, anyone?
5. Fall activities are plentiful.
Apple picking, pumpkin carving, hayrides…Who said only summer offers a wide range of fun activities?
6. Horror movies are on TV.
The season isn’t complete until you partake in the chills and thrills of classic horror films like Halloween and Nightmare on Elm Street. Just make sure you’ve got your roommie around — an empty dorm after one of those flicks is pretty terrifying!
7. It’s a great time to enjoy tailgates.
Even if you’re not a football fan, we’ll bet you still absolutely love a good tailgate. Food, games, good company…What more could you ask for?
8. The leaves start changing.
It’s all about the simple things, right? You never realize how beautiful your campus really is until the trees turn shades of red and golden yellow. Plus, walking to class is so much more fun when you can step on those crunchy fallen leaves!
9. Halloween vibes are everywhere.
There are homes adorned in spooky decor, haunted hayrides and activities that’ll send chills down your spine, and Halloween parties filled with outrageous costumes…We’re getting more excited the more we think about it!
10. It’s the perfect time for cozy nights in.
The chillier weather does have some perks. When else can you guilt-free spend a night in with a good movie, a warm blanket, and a cup of hot chocolate?
