College of Design

Sunday, May 17, 2015


Hi everyone!

This past week has been filled with studying, Starbucks, projects, and more Starbucks. All the hard work and late nights have paid off, and we have all made it through finals week. I can now say I am officially half way done with college! Now all that stands between us and summer is the posting of our grades. Once they are posted, we can finally breathe a sigh of relief and truly enjoy the sunshine and warm weather.

Summer is the best time to explore and enjoy the city. Minneapolis has so many great parks and sights to see. One of my favorite summer spots is Minnehaha Falls. The park was designed by landscape architect Horace Cleveland as a part of the Grand Rounds.

Although Minnehaha Falls is beautiful all year round, I especially like to visit in the summer when the water is rushing and surrounded by greenery. It's a great place to spend the day with friends where you can enjoy the beautiful landscape and stop by the restaurant for a refreshing ice cream cone.

Have a great summer!
