Day 22: Share a story from your college years.
An abundance of fun and crazy times happened in Iowa City at the University of Iowa. I loved the college scene- meeting people, being "independent" from my parents and taking the first steps toward my life as a teacher. However, when I saw the topic for this post, the first thought that popped into my head was Coralville Lake in Iowa City.
My college friends and I went to Coralville Lake every single weekend we had nice weather. The lake had a beach area where a large group of us would gather to place blown-up palm trees in the sand to create a Caribbean vibe.

We'd play beach volleyball, toss frisbees, swim, grill and so on. It was a blast and a nice break from all of the studying, paper-writing and exam-taking. We'd stay all day, then head back to our apartments to shower up and get back out for some fun in the night scene.

I met so many fabulous people during my college years and am still friends with some of them. I will always remember the University of Iowa fondly because of the great memories, especially on the beach at Coralville Lake.
Anyone else attend the University of Iowa?
