"In the rhythm of the seasons, Fall is true beginning of the year in a college town. In the South, in particular, the cooler, crisper breezes of September dispel the lethargy of the long, muggy summer months, and the bustle of returning students jolts the sleepy downtown streets back to life. Just as the song of the scarlet cardinals heralds the renewal of Spring, the influx of students pouring into campus heralds a new academic year."
