Listen. Do you hear that sound?
It’s a little faint now, but if you put your ear to the ground, you might be able to hear about 20,000 college students descending upon the area.
They’re coming from places like Paragould, Greenbrier, and Malvern. From Mena, El Dorado, and Mountain Home. Brinkley, Blytheville, and McGehee. Oh, and a lot of them are from Dallas.
Let’s hope they bring sweater weather with them.
