Let it snow!

As a Florida girl, I don’t have much experience with snow. I’d seen it a few times before coming to Vanderbilt, but this year has been the first time I’ve lived in it. And I love it. Every time I see those flakes cover campus in a soft white blanket, I have to go outside. My roommate and I enjoy frolicking in it, and for our first big snow as roommates we bundled up and ran outside to have a snowball fight, make snow angels, and carve a path through the pristine campus.  And we weren’t the only ones with this idea—the whole campus was out and about, sliding and tumbling through the snow.

For me, one of the most amazing parts of Vanderbilt is our campus. We’re a national arboretum, and so far every season I’ve seen here has been beautiful. During fall, all the leaves were stunning warm hues and I remember studying outside on a particularly breezy and beautiful fall day and watching the leaves slowly float to the ground. It’s amazing that not only do I get to study in such an awesome landscape, but I also get to live here.

As I currently sit in my dorm doing homework and looking longingly out at the snow covering the ground, I’m already excited for the next few days. Though the long walk to main campus is going to be a bit icy and quite chilly, it’s going to be beautiful. I’m looking forward to some serious snow frolicking with the Vanderbilt community this week.
