Fall is a time of year to recap everything you did last year; what worked, what didn't and what you could probably be doing better this time 'round.
Fall brings new faces and new adventures to be had, whether you are a Rook, Growing Sophomore, Ring-Dazzled Junior, or Graduation-bound Senior (and even beyond!).
Fall is a time to renew workout commitments and realize that hey, beach season is only eight months away. And there's nothing but snow here in the winter... time to get up to the gym.
Fall brings Air Force POC contracting and earning their new uniforms, wearing that fabric with pride that a summer of struggle and sweat earned you. And hey, you can roll your sleeves.
Fall is the time that familiar, timeless Norwich music swells forth from the new Sabine Field, where Alumni will soon walk on a new place with old feet.
Fall brings bills, and textbooks, and homework. Sleeping in late or just late nights in the library. But also a few well-deserved Saturday morning snoozes for upperclassmen. And the watchful eyes of Rooks taking in "civi Sunday" at the chow hall.
Fall is the time of "remember whens" and recounting of Rookdom adventures over a bonfire, caught between a fondness for the Corps and a wonder and what will come after.
Fall brings meetings and presentations and a slow building tension that will end with exam week and for some, a few good (exensive) nights at the Rustic.
Fall is the time for worship, and recollection, and reflection. For little flags on the UP and slow marching and buglers at night.
Fall for the Corps comes, and goes, and outlasts all of us.
