Snow: A Texan’s kryptonite. A weakness so prevalent at MSU that classes were canceled two days in a row.

“I didn’t have to go to classes, which was great because I wasn’t prepared like I should have been,” Jacqueline Gober, education sophomore, said. “It helped me get prepared for my homework that was due the next day.”

The snow day gave students some time to do their assignments, but for some, extra days of relaxation were too good to pass up.

“On Monday, my roommates, and I decided to watch musicals all day. Yesterday I got caught up on all my homework,” Gober said.

As the green space turned to white, roads became increasingly more difficult to drive on.

“I was talking to some of my roommates on Tuesday morning, and from the sounds of it, a lot of the roads were covered in ice, so it would have been hard to drive,” Alex Van Allen, history junior, said.

Since classes were canceled, amenities such as the library and bookstore were closed. The wellness center cancelled recreational sports for those days, and bus routes were delayed. Parking lots were full and cars were frosty as MSU turned into a winter wonderland. The overall attitude of the students was clear.

“It was cold,” Gober said.
