NEW WILMINGTON, Pa.–Living in western Pennsylvania I have learned to expect the unexpected when it comes to the weather. We experience crazy weather changes in a blink of an eye, but we are extremely lucky for the beauty of seeing all four seasons. Going to school an hour north of Pittsburgh right below the snow belt of I-80, we still get our fair share of harsh seasons. Even with the brutal weather conditions, Westminster College simply brings out the beauty in the seasons.
Many colleges and universities are placed in rural and urban areas with building that make the building look like they were forced in certain spots. On the other hand, Westminster College sits right in the middle of Amish country.
One would think it would make the college dull, but it does the complete opposite. The buildings at Westminster have a very natural feeling to them, as if they were apart of the natural design of the landscape.
The autumn season at Westminster is one of the most breathtaking times of the year. That is why I took to the skies in my DJI Phantom Drone to showcase what Westminster. The changing landscape blends in with the rustic architecture of the academic buildings.
The whistling sound of the cool wind, mixed with the thundering beat of the drums from the Westminster Marching Band gets you excited for the football season. The chilly breeze also reminds you of what is soon to come in the next few weeks.
The beauty of the season from the ground is pretty remarkable. It makes one feel like it is out of a movie where everything is staged. Taking to the skies brings in a different view that really display why Westminster College is one with nature.
