5 Things to Do in Btown Before Summer!

1. Go to the Quarry

This is at the top of my bucket list! Once the weather is warm enough, my sisters and I have made it a priority to go Quarry jumping. I'm not sure if it will be warm enough this year to jump in, but we have made plan to at least check it out before the summer.

2. Attend an IU Baseball Game

There are plenty of home games at this time of year and no excuse not go cheer on the Hoosiers! We were all there for IUBB, so come on and support the rest of IU athletics.

3. Purchase some ice cream at the Chocolate Moose

After a long, painful winter the Chocolate Moose has finally opened. Take some friends and try one of their homemade sundaes or floats. One of my new favorite flavors is the Grasshopper, it even comes with candy googly eyes.

4. Hike Around Griffy Lake

I just made my first trip to Griffy Lake a few weeks ago for Mom's Weekend. It literally takes 5 minutes to get there, just keep driving straight down Fee Lane and make a right right after you cross 45/46. The winding road leads to the beautiful lake, full of hiking trails and kayak rentals.

5. Go to La Cha!

This has easily become one of my new favorite restaurants in Bloomington. If you're 21, try one of their delicious margaritas, if not their queso is amazing along with their flautas! Perfect way to start your summer.

Maddie GlennJournalism Major, Class of 2015

Hello folks! My name is Maddie and I'm super excited to be a blogger for WeAreIU! Being a Journalism (and Psychology) major, it seems like I have experience writing in every other style except blogging. So I thought I'd give it a try. I'm going to be a junior at IU this fall. It blows my mind to think I only have 2 years left!

There are so many things I want to do in my last few years. This past winter, I joined a sorority--Alpha Gamma Delta. My sisters have already made such a huge impact on my life, and I'm counting down the days till I get to live with them on NoJo! I also write for the IDS and IU HerCampus. I would like to continue exploring my writing passion and get involved with more journalism related student organizations. In addition, I volunteer at PALS, a therapeutic riding center, and I am a part of the IU Equestrian Team. This year I hope to get more involved with the team and compete in some shows!

Here's to making the most of my precious time left here at this wonderful school! I hope I can give you a glimpse of everything it has to offer!
