Kailey Verni: My favorite place on campus is Fenwick Hall…most notably in the fall when the ivy begins to change color. Fenwick is my favorite spot because not only did my first visit campus begin there, but also a huge portion of my HC experience was in this hall. Having been an English and Philosophy double major, many of my classes and professors’ offices were here. I frequented the second and third floors, spending hours talking with professors and learning more about my particular interests. During my time as a tour guide, I spent my fall and winter breaks familiarizing myself with the first floor. Fenwick Hall holds a special place in my heart as a central part of my Holy Cross experience.
Emily: My favorite spot on campus is definitely Cool Beans 2. As an International Studies major, many of my classes are in the humanities, so I definitely spend a lot of time in Stein! CB2 is a great spot to grab coffee with friends, catch up on some homework, or meet for a group project. There are a ton of nice places to sit — I usually try and snag one of the high-top round tables! My favorite thing to get is absolutely their vanilla latte!
Joanna: My favorite spot on campus is definitely the Hoval, located conveniently behind Hogan Campus Center. It’s a great place to take a quick study break or hang out with friends! There’s always something going on, whether it’s bouncy houses during Spring Weekend, or free food trucks on Fridays. The Hoval is where I like to catch up with friends over lunch and lay underneath the tree for a reading break, making it my favorite spot on campus!
Joseph: There are many reasons why Cool Beans is my favorite spot on campus. Most importantly they have some of the best milkshakes and smoothies I have ever tasted! I made it a goal my first year to try each and every smoothie and I have no regrets. Aside from the shakes, ice cream, and awesome ice tea, another reason I like Cool Beans so much is because I always meet up with friends there. Since the shop is in our campus center I see so many people walk by and I’m bound to meet up with one of my friends.
Sara: In addition to Cool Beans, my favorite spot on campus is the Hart Center Lawn (especially at sunset). The Hart Center, which is currently being renovated, is at the top of the Hill and has one of the best views of Worcester. At Fall Orientation, the Mass of the Holy Spirit is held on the Hart Lawn and marks the beginning of one’s time at Holy Cross. I love to take walks around campus, especially during the summer, as it is not only relaxing, but you experience campus in a new way each time. The view from the back of Hart, at the soccer field, also offers a beautiful outlook into Auburn.
