3 favorite places after 3 months at Holy Cross!

Hi everyone! My name is Meghan and I am so excited to share with you my experiences on the Hill this upcoming year. I finished my finals exams a couple days ago and flew back to my hometown of Madison, Wisconsin yesterday. On the plane ride home I reflected on my first few months here. It is crazy to think I have been here for just a few months- I feel like I have met so many people, spent so many nights in the library, and experienced so much! In my reflection of first semester I compiled a list of my THREE favorite places on campus thus far after THREE months of exploring Holy Cross!
1) The Mary Chapel
The Mary Chapel is the “lower chapel” where night-time masses are held at Holy Cross. It is smaller than the St. Joseph Chapel, the more well-known and larger church located above the Mary Chapel. I love going to 7pm or 9pm Mass on Sundays in the lower chapel following a long dinner at Kimball (the main dining hall) catching up on everyone’s weekends. Sunday night Mass is casual and a social time for students to come together!
2) Kimball Dining Hall
I love to go to Kimball because it is a great place to catch up with friends. Since it is the main dining hall on campus it is always busy, especially at dinner time. On Sundays I find myself staying in Kimball for hours talking and refilling my frozen yogurt bowl again and again!

3) “The stacks”

As a first-year student I have experimented with study spots a lot and have realized “the stacks” are my favorite place to study for a Spanish test or power through an essay. This study area in Dinand library consists of cubicles and some “comfy chairs” tucked away and hidden between shelves of books.
