Students have a fun and safe way to chill out before finals week.

Have you ever seen snow? Well, look no further. It’s that time of year for a campus snow day. A mini winter wonderland will descend on campus from 1-3 p.m. Wednesday in the mall area.
Snow Day is the last event of the year hosted by the office of student life, immediately following the tree lighting ceremony 11 a.m.-1 p.m.
The event will include fake snow along with a slide that people can tube down.
“This year we are doing things a little different,” Coordinator of Student Success Jacob-Aidan Martinez said. “We are separating the snowball area from the slide so we can keep people out of the war zone.”
Martinez, the brains and organizer behind Snow Day, said he brought the idea with him when he came to work for the college.
“It’s been a hit ever since,” Martinez said. “It’s nice to see the students react, and it’s a safe way before finals to de-stress.”
Martinez said last year things got a little chaotic and hard to control. To prevent people from getting hurt, Martinez has asked the campus police for help with the crowd and to cone off the snowball area.
The event is open to the public, but a waiver is required to participate in snow activities. For more information, call the office of student life at 210-486-0125.
