Autumn at Woods

Swing for the Fences!

This is me (#9) taking a swing at a fastball in our first fall scrimmage! Go Owls!

So begins the fall season at William Woods. 75 degrees of sunshine accompanied by the autumn breeze await me as I walk down the stairs of my Stone Campbell on-campus apartment. The fall is my favorite season because it symbolizes a break from the heat of a Missouri summer and a welcome mood boost from Mother Nature herself.

The fall means spending time outdoors and enjoying the cordial music streaming out of the Greek Houses as I walk to class. Everyone at Woods is as happy as the sun is bright during this autumn season! You can find me out on the baseball field with my team or spending time with some of the best friends this world has to offer!

For me, autumn at William Woods means getting back into the swing of baseball with my teammates during our fall season. On the baseball team, we practice all week long and host few fall scrimmages in our short and sweet fall baseball season. Pairing up a sports season with an academic schedule is no easy task. However, the environment here at William Woods allows us to get our education while maintaining a high academic standard and playing the game that we love. Student-athlete truly is the best of both worlds! When I'm not on the field practicing, you can find me in the library sharpening my mind or at my residence in the Stone Campbell Apartment Complex getting some rest and recuperation. All in all, the fall puts a smile on my face. There is no place I would rather be than WWU!
