The great snowpocalypse of 2014

Posted on Feb 5, 2014 in Campus News and News

Last year, the University of Kansas campus closed for an unprecedented three snow days during the spring semester. This year, we’re close to matching that total after a winter storm hit Lawrence and shut campus down for two days this week.

Students and community members flocked to the Hill for a favorite tradition: sledding. Check out this Vine video from the Lawrence Journal-World.

Our photographer, Dan Storey, ventured out into the winter wonderland to snap a few photos of the fun. Click here to see our Facebook album.

And one last fun tidbit from the snow days: a snowball fight on Wescoe Beach organized via social media. Michael Marcus, a junior, sent out a single tweet on Tuesday that led to nearly 50 students showing up for the fight.
