Five Things To Do On Campus Before Classes Resume

Summer break is somehow already halfway over and we want to make the most of what’s left of it! Campus is the perfect place to soak up some outdoor time with your kids, on your own, or with a friend. We’ve got you covered with five things to do before students return this fall. 

Photo Scavenger Hunt

Load up the kids and a Polaroid camera and head out on a scavenger hunt of the most iconic spots on campus. Print out our scavenger hunt (below) for our top 10 spots, or create your own and get hunting! 

Picnic by the Red Cedar River

Nothing is more peaceful than the Red Cedar Rolling by while you watch the ducks swim. Pack a lunch with your kids or consider picking up takeout from a local spot. Bring a blanket, a couple books, and spend an hour or two on the river bank. 

Visit the Children’s Garden

This one is something your kids will definitely love. The Children’s Garden is a beautiful spot for your kids to explore, play, and create. While some of the regular activities are halted at this time, there is still so much to enjoy. Bonus: there is a bathroom open by the rose gardens for all your little ones in potty-training stage.

Rent a Scooter

We may be biased, but this one is probably more fun with a friend. Bring your sanitizing wipes, find a hub, and head out for a fun ride around campus. To find out more about the scooters head here. 

Dairy Store Ice Cream 

No trip to campus is complete without some Dairy Store Ice Cream! While the Dairy Store is open for curbside pickup only at this time, you can order ahead and grab and go!
