Love is in the air as the temperature begins to drop. As we approach the fall season here at UMKC, it’s time to start thinking about where to take that special someone as you navigate your way around campus. Here are five places around UMKC that can take your relationship to the next level without breaking the bank.
1. The Warkoczewski “Warko” Observatory on the roof of Royall hall
Have a passion for astrology? Or just a passion for free activities? On clear Friday nights this fall, visit the roof of Royall Hall to get some of the best views of outer space Kansas City has to offer. Snuggle up with that special someone, or just show them how much you know about the sky.
2. The National Museum of Toys and Miniatures
If you’re interested in reconnecting with your inner child, this on-campus attraction at 52nd and Oak is the spot for you. Free with your student ID, it’s a great place to take your newfound love while admiring some of the things you used to love.
3. Linda Hall Library
Need a break from the hustle and bustle of Miller Nichols Library and Learning Center? Find that peace while spending quality time with your significant other at the Linda Hall Library. On campus and centrally located, this is the spot to get that quality time with someone special.
4. Fitness classes at Swinney Recreation Center
Not only is your significant other someone who you spend all your time with, but they can also keep you accountable in so many ways. Check out the free classes at Swinney and have fun working out with your forever workout partner.
5. UMKC sporting events
Also free with your student ID, our 16 Division I athletic teams play both on campus and around the city, which makes for a perfect excuse for you and your special someone to show off that UMKC spirit.
