For the love of nature

What's to love: The students of this college say there is nothing better than unwinding at the end of a tiring day amid nature.

While many come here to just enjoy the beauty and the cool evening breeze, some also come here to complete assignments, discuss projects as well as to do group-study before the exams. Role play practices also happen here.

One of the youngsters says once he gets home there is no time to exercise so he goes for a power-walk in the park after college. There are some students who cannot get enough of the candy floss, the ice golas and the roasted peanuts that are sold outside the park.

This is also where they love taking pictures on special occasions. Some students prefer hanging out on the High Court side of Cubbon Park at the City Central Library either to collect information for assignments or to catch a quiet read.

These youngsters say some of the best memories that will remain of their college days are the moments spent in the park i.e. the break-ups, the make-ups, the reunions et al.

What's not to: The students can't come here on a daily basis because this off-campus hangout is not all that close to their college.

Also, this isn't the place to be when it rains.

Alternative: Sweet Chariot on Residency Road obviously for the pastries and of course the location.
