  1. During Carnival, but not a Carnival event, I remember the brave midnight ride in my friend’s (nameless to protect him!) 4-wheel-drive pickup to see how far up the slopes of Mont Ripley we could drive. Not very far as it turned out, and we spent some lengthy freezing time digging out. Too bad that Ripley snowcat’s keys weren’t in it because that was our first attempt for a tow vehicle!

  2. Some friends and I wanted to take advantage of the time off from school by snowshoeing. But this had to be an epic trip. We ended up snowshoeing in and around Brockway Mountain with no more than a map on a napkin. Somehow, after climbing up a ridge, we made it back within thirty yards of the truck many hours later. It was exhilarating, peaceful, beautiful, and looking back, one of those moments that you can’t believe you did.

  3. My wife and I got engaged while snowshoeing out at McLains during winter carnival 2014 while visiting as alumni.

  4. Living in DHH for 3 of my 4 years, I generally was on Letter Duty for the snow statue. I still have clothes that are stained blue from the slush!!!! We would be stuck in a back stairwell in the middle of the dorm and had buckets of snow that we made into slush, then filled the wooden frames so the blocks would set up and freeze. Then cutting out the letters. It was one of my favorite things to do.

  5. I remember the Spring Fling game throwing half a hotdog from a moving shopping cart into a cooler after the Lorana Bobbitt incident.

  6. The fall of my sophomore year, me and my boyfriend at the time decided to take a trip to Copper Harbor to camp for the weekend at Fort Wilkins. We entered a geocaching challenge and won 2nd place! But the best part was taking his old Explorer through the very VERY rough off road trails to the very tip of the peninsula and High Rock Bay! We bounced around a lot inside his truck (the suspension was terrible), the 8 mile trek taking a good portion of an hour to complete. It was worth it!

  7. One of my happiest memories is going skiing at Mont Ripley and coming back to Coed Hall to go in the sauna after a satisfying day on the slopes. What an excellent collegiate experience, and to think I even earned an “A” in Advanced Skiing while doing it!
