College life can be stressful. Higher education is rewarding, but working on a multitude of classes, projects, papers, notes and exams all at once can be draining.
After a long week of rushing to meet deadlines and writing a novel’s worth of data analysis, students need to walk away from school and spend some time in fun and relaxing places. Everyone needs to retreat to his (or her) metaphorical man cave, and the authors of this blog want to share some of Morgantown’s many great getaways.
As the blog title suggests, all the authors are men. Some of us have bold beards and manly mustaches. Others prefer a classy, clean-cut look. More importantly, we all love our favorite recreational activities, be they playing in recreational sports leagues, cheering on our favorite teams, mastering the latest video games, rocking out to our favorite bands, kicking back with a movie or taking in any other fine form of entertainment.
Our focus is on the communities surrounding these things. Rather than recapping football games or reviewing albums, we want to explore the local football fan community and area bands and listeners. We want readers to discover new topics of interest and learn how they can participate.
Although this blog is written by men, it is not exclusively for men. All students want to relax and have fun, as do Morgantown’s many non-student residents, so everyone is welcome and encouraged to read. We might be writing from a man cave, but we’re writing about a town full of diverse people and ideas.
