Although from the picture it is difficult to determine precisely what the people walking across the street are carrying, perhaps the picture represents a moving-day of sorts (perhaps at a dorm), as the items (i.e. the boxes) people are carrying appear rather large in size. (I'm reminded of my own moving-day experiences). Additionally, the traffic volume appears substantially high, as there are
numerous cars present, and an officer can be seen directing traffic. Both the high traffic volume and the carrying of large boxes remind me of my experience as a freshman during move-in day at FAR (Florida Avenue Residence Halls). -Nicole Ortegòn

This looks like move in time to the dorms because people are carrying suitcases and boxes and duffle bags and it looks like there are some parents there helping their kids. I would assume beginning of the sesmester. It could also be the end, the hot time of year and they are working hard. -Kitty Robles

Police officer holds traffic for college-age pedestrians, one carrying a box and another a filled picture frame (picture not visible from this side), as they pass through the crosswalk. White sky, probably humid summer or spring (attire, trees). Line of cars is long. All but one of the students is walking to the right. The officer has held up his hand to stop more students from walking to the left; perhaps he will allow the cars to move soon. -Steven A. Bluhm

In between terms or semesters where the new kids are moving in or moving across campus - or maybe some artist is setting up for a performance happening on the big lawn! -Jim Dailey
