I hope that as you read this you are safe and warm! We now have a LOT of snow in New England, after what has seemed like months of a non-white winter. Worcester got hit with a record-breaking 33.5 inches, and apparently more snow is on the way!
Since Holy Cross’ campus shut down on Tuesday, I read applications from home (and shoveled out my car as a reading break!). As I worked through my virtual pile of files, I could not help but think about how students might be enjoying their day off–the main dining hall, campus center, libraries, and rec center all closed by 7pm on Monday and reopened on Wednesday. With that in mind, what did students do on Tuesday? I asked some of our social media interns to send me a picture and tell me how they spent their snow day on Mt. St. James (I believe it was the first in about 7 years!). Here are their responses:
Natalie Correa, ’17: I spent the day catching up on homework and binge watching Netflix with my roommate!
Maddy Smith, ’17: Played in the snow for a little until I was told to go inside! Then watched a movie and had cocoa!
Mackenzie Horl, ’17: Upon waking up Wednesday morning, many ‘Saders could not wait to venture outside and see how much snow Mt. St. James had received. When the “shelter in place” was lifted….student put on their Bean boots and puffy winter coats to go…conquer the many hills around campus
I love that the students stayed safe but still enjoyed the winter wonderland that the campus must have become!
