October, is my favorite month at Wilmington College. The colors against the brick buildings create the personality of fall. The weather is always out to surprise you. Girls running around in scarfs, boys running around in sweatpants. The smiles that everyone has made it through one whole month of school and their ready to continue their education on campus.
