I woke up at 6:30 to go for a run in the morning. I always loved running around campus when I was a student, so every time I visit I try to go for a jog! I ended up running five miles, and stopped at Starbucks on my way back to my hotel. I ordered a pumpkin spice latte with coconut milk- the syrup they use has condensed milk in it so it's not vegan, but I had to have my annual PSL!
The career fair started at 10:00, so I had to check out of my hotel and head to the college to set up around 9:00. There was some food out for us, so I had some water and fruit salad. Students started to come right away, so I didn't really have much time to eat!
I snuck away around 12:45 to grab some lunch. There was a huge picnic set up outside (the fresh air felt AMAZING) and there were so many options! They had salad, pasta, gluten free sandwiches, vegan and vegetarian wraps, and regular options as well. I grabbed a roasted veggie wrap with hummus spread and some salad and chips along with more coffee to get me through the rest of the day.
We tore down our display around 4:00, and I hurried out to meet up with some friends for dinner! I still know a few people that stayed in the State College area after college for work, so any time I'm visiting we always try to meet up. We ended up going to Olde New York where I got a delicious black bean burger (seriously..the best one I've ever had, even though it looks kind of gross in the picture) with some fries and a Firey Mule (Fireball with ginger beer and lime juice- amazing!). We stayed for a while catching up, then I headed home.
What are some of your favorite things to do when you visit your college?
Any other pumpkin beer lovers? It's my favorite type of seasonal beer!
Best thing you've had recently? That black bean burger is seriously amazing...
