Campus is really showing off its beauty lately. It's been a snowy year!

It's final exam week on campus. There are plenty of study spots around campus. Pick one to fit your mood.

Cozy? We suggest Walter Library. Modern vibes with a great view of the snow? Try Rapson Hall. Hoping to grab a snack? Coffman Memorial Union or Northrop Auditorium are great options.

11/29/2022

We get a lot of questions about the weather - yes, it snows, and we won't lie, it does get cold. But as long as you're wearing warm clothes you'll be comfortable! And you can always take the heated tunnel system between classes if you really don't want to go outside.

We recommend getting outside, even in winter. Look how beautiful it is! And there are plenty of fun activities like ice skating, sledding, or cross country skiing to try out.

Welcome home, Gophers! These are the moments that I captured while going to classes during the first week. What a perfect day to be back on campus.

As a senior, I don’t get to take too many classes outside my major, but for some classes I need to go back and forth to the East Bank and West Bank. And I hope it will be a semester where I can enjoy the weather. It is nice to see the campus so lively with Gophers!!
