Many Wesleyan students start to seem distracted every year come Fall. For many, September is the most important month of the year. Why you ask? Labor Day weekends at the lake with friends? Nope. The beginning of Fall and the feel of crunching leaves underneath your feet? Nope. Starting to get spooky in preparation for Halloween? Possibly, but none of these things even come close to the level of commitment and excitement that fantasy football awakens in Wesleyan students every September.
Atlanta’s new up and coming stadiums are taking the community by storm. Over the summer, a large portion of students attended the new Braves stadium, SunTrust Park. SunTrust park opened Mar. 31 2017 for the preseason game against the Yankees.
Junior Luke Schiller attended the game and said, “There’s better food and it’s a much better experience than Turner Field.” SunTrust park does have some extraordinary food options, including First & Third Hot Dog & Sausage Shack, Waffle House, Fox Bros BBQ and many others.
The stadium was completed in March and has been a hot spot for our community ever since. Junior Laura Von Bargen said, “My sister took me to a game and it was smaller than I expected, but it was fun.” Junior Savannah Sommer added, “I can’t wait to go next summer and watch the game from right field; it seems really awesome.” The stadium really seemed to hit a home run with the students.
