Walking around campus is like walking through a cesspool of goo goo-eyed couples, locking lips and hands and showing their affection. I personally never had a problem with public displays of affection or the fact that I haven’t had the opportunity to smack away; but let me tell you the hottest spots on campus–and I’m not talking about Wi-Fi.
I decided to take an adventure around campus and count how many couples I saw making out in the same spots, and, to my surprise, there are quite a few attractions. Trying to look as casual as possible, I spotted a couple smooching beneath the stairs in Gander Hall. It was a nice, cozy spot with plenty of bench space for two. So if you’re on a “lunch date” and feeling some PDA coming on, there is not one, but three sets of benches with perfect lighting to set any mood. I wont name drop, but a particular couple seems to enjoy that spot so much, they even nap together every day around noon.
Love life went from embarrassingly low to above average this semester. Some people say it’s because there are new hunks on campus while others say it’s the beginning of the year and people are trying to claim their prize early. I have no idea, but either way it feels like mating season in the jungle, which leaves us single people to watch in awkward jealousy. I stopped a group of chatty females on the way to my next hot spot and asked them how they felt about PDA on campus; of course, the single one made the first move.
“I think it’s just plain gross, said the single angry female, “ I mean why can’t they just get a room? It’s not like we don’t have enough of them here on campus.”
I’m not one to stereotype, but it seems as though it’s always the single friend with the problem. The next female wasn’t as disgusted as the other. Here is what she had to say:
“I don’t see a problem with PDA. My boyfriend and I make out all the time on the benches outside,” said the proud boyfriend-having female. “ We are all pretty much adults here on campus, and if people can’t handle a little bit of kissing, screw them!”
After her comment, I decided I would pass on asking the other three ladies how they felt, seeing that their faces said it all. They were going to either side with the lonely party pooper or the feisty PDA lover.
The next place I found was right outside of the library, with the cute little water spout and the nice shaded tables. I must admit I did look like a creeper trying to spy on the next couple, but I counted at least three couples holding hands and kissing. This hot spot may be outside, but it definitely has a romantic feel, especially at night.
Moving on, I paid a visit to the Donius University Center to see what other couples were feeling the love. I passed by a bunch of empty tables and chairs; however, the couches seemed to be getting quite a bit of action. In the last set of couches, I spotted a couple giving Eskimo kisses to one another and rubbing pants legs. It wasn’t my idea of making out or my definition of PDA, but affection is affection. I plopped down on the couch to check its comfort ability (because that really matters when you’re eating someone’s face), and it was amazing! If you’re going for a more comfortable spot to bump noses, try the D.U.C.
After leaving the DUC, I thought it was a wrap on the top make out spots, but this last incident made me reconsider. Now I’ve never really paid that much attention to Buder Commons, but this particular night something caught my eye. I was walking back to my apartment and I saw two heads bob and weave from a distance. There was a couple making out in front of Buder Commons on the stairway, a nice spot away from the rest of campus. However, I’m going to remind you that campus security is also in Buder Commons now, so let’s keep it PG-13.
I walked away smiling, knowing my mission was complete. I have compiled the most popular make out spots on campus. So if you have a significant other and you’re looking for a get-away spot, try one of these– after all, the rest of the campus has.
