What is springtime at Howard University? Spring time is the weather hitting the mid 70s and everyone sitting out on the yard. Spring time is when someone turns on their speaker and the whole school congregating around it. Spring time is when someone decides to bring a table and some DJ equipment and a speaker and it turns into an entire darty (day party) at 2 in the afternoon until around 5 pm. That was my introduction to the spring at Howard and oh, it was so good.
