While Spring Quarter’s warm weather allows stressed students to take scenic Lakefill walks, the campus geese get their moment to shine. This spring, they made way for several youngsters.

The goslings are able to fly and find their own food after only seven to 10 weeks, but they will migrate south with their parents in the fall and remain together until they return in spring. The Daily photographed the geese as they grew up alongside students on campus.
