You can definitely feel the buzz around campus, when even the slightest possibility of a snow day exists. Snow days are rare enough that they bring a special type of excitement with them, the sort of excitement that comes out at lacrosse games and whenever free food is available on campus. College snow days are especially fun, not only are all your friends instantly free, but everyone is within a mile radius so there’s not a lot of risk in traveling to meet up. With lots of talk on campus about a potential snow day tomorrow, I’ll take you through what a typical snow day at Hopkins can be like.
6:03 AM- Wake up to check if school has sent out an e-mail

11:15 AM- Wake up 2.0, quickly text friends seeing who wants to get brunch
11:42 AM- Struggle to find appropriate winter clothing, realize you left the new gloves Mom bought for you at home, decide to brave the cold sans gloves
