Every year when the fall semester starts up, it's exciting to feel how much energy the students bring to campus. And nowhere is this more evident than in the Pit. The "Pit" is the charming term for the sunken courtyard in the center of campus. It's bordered by Lenoir Dining Hall, the Undergraduate Library, Student Stores, and the Student Union. Sit here at lunchtime and it seems as if the whole student body will walk by you. Student organizations set up interest booths and hold fundraisers, friends meet for lunch, dance and musical groups hold mini-performances. My coworker Erin Breese captured a bit of the view from the Pit today on video. Enjoy!
