Students ready for spring


With spring slowly
approaching, Bucks students
take heart in knowing that they
will no longer have to deal
with the obstacles that the winter
months brought this season.
Sick of winter, Kasey
Woodward, 18, a science major
from Newtown, does not enjoy
going to school in the cold
weather as there is a lot of
walking between parking lots
and classes. “It’s not like high
school, when you ride a bus
and get dropped off at the
door,” she said. “I cannot wait
to go outside without being
cold and drive around with my
windows down.”
The snow did not affect Jon
Curley’s commute to school
too much; he only has Tuesday
and Thursday classes. Curley,
25, a business administration
major from Yardley is sick of
the snow because he could not
hang out with friends.
Laughing, he stated, “I was
stuck-in and was going crazy.”
Will Nicholson, 20, a business
major from Washington
Crossing, crashed his jeep in
the snow. Consequently, he
had to drive his Mazda. “Now
that was not good in the snow,”
Nicholson complained. Due to
the snow, he missed work for
two days. He added, “I like
spring semester more because
classes just seem more fun.”
Also missing a day of work
because of the snow was a 19-
year-old biology major from
Bensalem, Bridget Haller. She
believes that winter is the
toughest time of the year for
people because business goes
down when people do not want
to leave their houses. Even
though she loves the snow,
Haller announced: “Enough is
enough. Spring is better in my
opinion because it’s warmer
and all the flowers bloom.”
Another individual who
looks forward to spring is
Chris Loughlin, 19, a liberal
arts major from Richboro.
“I am ready to wear shorts
and play baseball at the park,”
he remarked. Loughlin thinks
winter is the most difficult time
of the year “because the wintry
air and gray skies usually
depress people.”
Breanne Hillis, an 18-yearold
from Newtown, also cannot
wait for spring.
Hillis explained: “At first, I
was excited for snow days.
Now that it has snowed so
much more though, it is getting
annoying because it gets hard
to drive through it.”
“Plus, my development doesn’t
get plowed very well, so
that made my commute to
school rather difficult,” she
added. Hillis thinks that winter
is the toughest time of the year
for people who are new to driving.
Allison Boyd, 19, an education
major from Newtown, felt
dragged down this winter
because of all the snow and ice
on her car.
Meghan Killen, 21, a medical
assistant major from
Richboro, is also tired of winter.
“I want spring!” she shouted.
“Because the roads were
slick and really crazy, winter
was a burden,” Killen said.
A differing opinion was
expressed by a 20-year-old
music-education major from
Newtown, Melissa Wright.
Wright is not tired of winter,
and it did not affect her commute
to school too much. “The
spring will be good for a
change, but I enjoy the cold,”
Wright concluded.
Though sick of being stuck
inside of her house, Jeanette
Heitz, 22, an education major
from Levittown, is not ready to
see spring yet.
But when the shift from winter
to spring comes, she says,
“It’s nice to see the changes
around us.”
