You’ll always know it’s the end of spring semester here at Liberty University when droves of students appear on the academic lawn. After all, it’s finally Reading Day, and it’s also the LU Community Yard Sale! Hosted by Student Activities, the Community Yard Sale offers a chance for LU students and community vendors to sell clothes, furniture, dorm décor, and more.
In the morning I met up with my friend Cameron to check out the steals and the deals at the yard sale. We wandered through over thirty booths, picking up unique finds, cute clothes, and good books. After paying each vendor, we stuffed our purchases into our free Student Activities tote bags (pro tip: those bags are super handy to keep in the dorm!). We also followed Student Activities on social media and received free tumblers!
Local food trucks such as Nomad Coffee and Dawn & Dusk Donuts also visited, so I bought my all-time favorite iced latte, the Blue Ridge (espresso with white chocolate, coconut, and mint!). No better way to spend Reading Day than drinking coffee and thrifting with friends, am I right?
To cap off my Reading Day activities, I invited the gals from my small group to come over to my apartment. We ate dinner together, made homemade frozen coffee, and piled on my sofa. After lots of giggling, we took time to intentionally speak encouragement over one another to end this semester.
Life at Liberty is special because the people here are so special. Every year I meet new guys and gals that are just absolutely incredible, and this semester was no different. There are simply so many life-changing people here on this campus, and I can’t imagine living life without the friends I’ve made while attending Liberty.
You’ll just have to come experience it for yourself!
Hope to see you around campus soon,
