As November and the beginning of a long Appalachian winter creeps closer, students were out this week soaking in the sunshine and staying active in what could be the last weekend to touch 70 degrees Fahrenheit this calendar year. On the Greenway, it was almost impossible to walk without seeing a frisbee in the air, a runner whizzing by you or a soccer game ahead of you. What will next week look like?
