I live in Antigonish, a small town where technically, half of the residents are university students. I also live very close to campus, surrounded by student housing. In September, when they all arrive for the start of classes, the atmosphere of the town changes abruptly. I love this time of year. The influx of a few thousand young people excited and hopeful for new beginnings brings an energy that's hard to ignore. It's true that they make a lot of noise at night and contribute a lot of trash to my yard, but overall, I'd much rather have them here than not. They make the town feel so alive.

This image is a typical winter scene from Antigonish, with yards piled high with snow and students walking to and fro with their backpacks.
