Spring time — warmer weather, the crippling stress of finding a summer internship, but most of all, lots of hours spent hanging out on Memorial Glade. In the Clog’s humble opinion, Memorial Glade is one of the best spots on campus, as it offers something for everyone. The cast of characters on the Glade is familiar to all of us, from the couple doing eyebrow-raising yoga to the doggos running to and fro.
