The Bigger Picture: Life Returns to Grounds
If you sit in the Clark Hall atrium long enough at the end of the first week of classes, you’ll hear the whispers of studying students: “Have you started the paper yet?” and “I’m not sure I can wake up for this 8 a.m.”
Laptop keys clack and the sounds of the Greenberry’s Coffee Roasters espresso machine in Clark Café interrupts the relative quiet. In a nearby classroom, students take extensive notes on general relativity and the expanding universe. Each seat in the atrium and the library beyond it is filled. Around each corner and through every door, the normal rhythms have returned to the University of Virginia.
