Enjoy the Snow!
Walkers Be Careful
If you are walking to campus in the morning when it is still dark, please use extreme caution. There have been numerous reports of near misses as students are difficult to see in the dark, rain and snow.
It can be slippery so be cautious!
Wear reflective clothing and be careful out there.
