Scenes from a snowy campus


In the wake of the weekend’s snowy deluge, much of the activity around campus on Monday centered around either digging out from, or making one’s way through, the snow. Here are a few scenes from U-M’s winter wonderland.

    My daughter will be driving back from Ludington, MI tomorrow. We have been having blizzard conditions today with temperatures in the negatives. During most of the day we have had white out conditions and I’m very nervous about her driving back tomorrow. Her first class starts at 8 am on Wednesday and she has three more classes after that. From what I’m hearing the weather is not going to be a whole lot better tomorrow. If it isn’t what is your policy if she were to miss the first day of classes? This is my question. Regardless of the weather she has no intention of not driving back tomorrow so she can be at classes on Wednesday.
